Preliminary flood risk assessments

We have completed a Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment, a statutory obligation arising from the Flood Risk Regulations 2009.

The purpose of the Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment is to assess surface water flooding through readily available information obtained from a data collection exercise on past and future flooding.

The assessment identifies any flood risk areas firstly of national significance and then of local significance. A total of 57 flood risk areas deemed to be locally significant have been identified in Shropshire.
