Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA)

Date published


Many urban areas within Eden District are situated in close proximity to the River Eden and its tributaries. As a consequence there is a considerable history of flooding with significant events occurring repeatedly at several locations.

The Strategic Flood Risk Assessment forms part of the Council's evidence base for the Eden Local Plan. It will be developed and refined over time and will feed into the preferred site allocations for housing and employment within the District.
