Strategic Flood Risk Assessment

As a coastal town, consideration of flood risk plays an important role in development decisions in the Borough. The local authorities that form the Partnership for South Hampshire (PfSH) have updated the Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA). This work was carried out by the Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership and published in 2016.


The SFRA comes in two parts: A mapping database and the SFRA report.


The mapping database shows coastal flooding, surface water flooding and the potential impact of climate change.


The final report summarises the key findings of the SFRA for Gosport and is tailored for:

  • The specific flood risk found in each Local Planning Authority area;
  • Relating national policy to specific SFRA information and data; and
  • Providing guidance on the requirements of site-specific FRAs.

 

The final report can be found here and mapping can be accessed from: https://www.portsmouth.gov.uk/ext/development-and-planning/planning-policy/strategic-flood-risk-assessment



Gosport Borough Local Plan 2011-2029

As part of the evidence base for the Gosport Borough Local Plan 2011-2029, the Borough Council has undertaken a SFRA (level 1) for its strategic local plan allocations which uses the PfSH SFRA as its starting point. This has been supplemented by further technical work (level 2) incorporating the PfSH SFRA and additional information on flood risk and developing local management options provided by the Environment Agency and the Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership.
