Environmental Issues

The main purpose of the Strategic Flood Risk Assessment for Huntingdonshire 2017 [PDF, 5.5MB] (SFRA) is to provide:

  • up-to-date information and guidance on flood risk
  • inform the selection of options for Local Plan allocations and
  • support determination of planning applications.

View the Appendices to the SFRA 2017.

The SFRA fulfils both Level One and Level Two SFRA requirements as detailed in national planning practice guidance.

SFRA 2010 mapping for Middle Level Commissioner Areas

For those villages which are entirely within Flood Zone 3 as defined in the 2017 SFRA only, the 2010 SFRA, which took account of flood defences, will be used as the basis for decision-making, and general market housing will only be permitted in areas shown as being in Flood Zone 1 as defined in that document.

Note [PDF, 26.5MB] tabled at the September 2017 Development Management Committee which sets out this information and the SFRA 2010 mapping for Middle Level Commissioner Areas.
