Flood risk management

This section includes a number of documents related to flood risk management in Surrey.

These documents are the evidence base used to inform the drafting of the Surrey Local Flood Risk Management Strategy. The Surrey Local Flood Risk Management Strategy (currently being developed) aims to increase awareness of local flood risk issues, but also sets out how partners are working together to reduce flood risk in the county. In accordance with legislation, the strategy has to explain what is being done to manage 'local flood risk' (flooding from groundwater, ordinary watercourses and surface water). It is also an opportunity to provide information on all sources of flood risk and to discuss the links between them.

A large amount of information exists on flood risk across Surrey. For ease of reference all the plans and strategies used to inform the strategy are included here (where these documents are available electronically). The section includes the latest version of strategic flood risk assessments for all the Surrey boroughs and districts, catchment flood management plans, the legislation which determines the roles and responsibilities of Surrey County Council and its partners and other sources of information used to inform the strategy.
