Flood Risk Standing Advice


Local Flood Risk Standing Advice

Standing Advice is a tool to help local planning authorities (LPAs) establish the level of flood risk involved with planning applications. It also helps LPAs to deal with low risk applications without the need to consult the Environment Agency (EA) directly.

Local Flood Risk Standing Advice (FRSA) has been developed for this Authority to further refine the EA national standing advice for flood risk matters. This Local FRSA should be used instead of the national FRSA. This Local FRSA provides more locally specific standard comments for particular types of development.  This will enable the LPA to deal with lower risk applications without directly consulting the EA.
