  1. FD2320 Flood Risk Assessment Guidancefor New DevelopmentAn introduction to FD2320

  2. Who is this presentation designed for? • Anyone visiting the website for the first time or would like to know more about the project behind the website.

  3. What is the purpose of this presentation? • Provide some background to FD2320 • Summarise the outputs from FD2320 • Explain how the outputs are relevant to you • Point out which outputs are most useful for you

  4. How did this project come about? • Since PPG25 in 2001 substantial R&D has been commissioned (some of which is now completed, some is still ongoing) dealing with different scales and aspects of assessment and management of flood risk for new development. • However, it is growing • increasing difficult for • practitioners to navigate • and use this effectively.

  5. What was the objective of this project? • To provide guidance on the assessment of flood risk (and the mitigation/management of that risk) to assist with the regulation and planning of new developments in England and Wales. • The project covers: All scales of decision-making All levels of assessment All types of flooding

  6. All types of flooding • Coastal • Tidal • River • Overland • Sewer • Groundwater

  7. Who was this project aimed at? • Environment Agency • (National, Regional and Area levels) • Local Planning Authorities • Regional Planning Bodies • Developers • Consultants • Research Community In England and Wales

  8. Who carried out this project? • Defra/EA Client Project Manager - Suresh Surendran • Contractors • HR Wallingford (main Contractor) • CIRIA • CEH • Key customer representative - Mervyn Pettifor • Supported by the Project Board • Wider development and flood risk community • Engaged via 4 workshops throughout project (including invitations to EA regional and area offices)

  9. What are the outputs from the project? Digital Versions via the website Paper Versions via Technical Reports: FD2320/TR1 - Overview FD2320/TR2 - Full Documentation & Tools • Framework • Guidance • Tools • Communication & Implementation Plan • Monitoring & Review Plan • EA training presentation • Website Project Record: FD2320/PR1 Project Extension: Dissemination

  10. Where can you find these outputs? • Technical Reports • - Available on this website • Project Record • - Available via the R&D Risk Team

  11. There are 3 types of outputs • Framework • Guidance • Tools

  12. The Framework • What is it? • The means by which the links between the different aspects of assessing and managing flood risk for new developments are identified and explained. • When is it of relevance to you? • If you want to understand or explain to others how different planning activities relate to different types or scales of assessments and the information they rely on.

  13. The Guidance • What is it? • A set of 26 individual guidance notes • A summary of current science and best practice from the perspective of the topic in question. • A source of references to more detailed information (e.g. available R&D reports, ongoing R&D projects or initiatives, guidance manuals, websites, AMS documents, etc.) • What is it NOT? • A presentation of Defra, ODPM or EA policy • A statement of what is/is not acceptable as far as the EA is concerned with respect to new development

  14. Decision Guidance • What’s needed for Development Planning? • D1.1 National Planning Policy • D1.2 Regional Spatial Strategies • D1.3 Local Development Frameworks • D1.4 Planning Applications and Decisions • Which indicators can be used? • D2.1 Flood Risk Indicators • D2.1 ADD1 RASP – A Summary • D2.1 ADD2 Flood Risks to People Calculator • Which type of assessment can be used? • D3.1 National Flood Risk Assessments • D3.2 Catchment Flood Management Plans • D3.3 Shoreline Management Plans • D3.4 Strategic Flood Risk Assessments • D3.5 Flood Risk Assessments

  15. How to navigate the framework S1.1 Introduction to the framework S1.2 How to use the Activity Chart S1.3 How to use the Information Chart S1.4 Glossary and Abbreviations How to manage the assessment processes S2.1 Reporting S2.2 Information Management S2.3 Auditing and Control S2.4 Stakeholder Engagement S2.5 Linkage to Statutory Requirements Key technical issue S3.1 Climate Change S3.2 Risks to People Behind Defences S3.3 Safe Access and Exit S3.4 Brownfield Development S3.5 Mitigation Measures Support Guidance

  16. Guidance Notes (1) • How are the notes structured? • All guidance notes have the same structure to make finding information easier: - Introduction - Data and Information - Roles and Responsibilities - Processes and Procedures - Tools and Technologies - Audit and Control • Each note starts by explaining what is does/does not do • Each note is supported by cross-references to other guidance notes and to other documentation

  17. Guidance Notes (2) • How do you use them? • If viewed digitally, hyperlinks can be used to jump to cross-references • The framework (via the website) can also be used to access relevant guidance notes • Which notes are likely to be the most useful on a regular basis? • Climate Change • Risks to People Behind Defences • Safe Access and Exit • Flood Risk Indicators • Auditing and Control

  18. The Tools • What is a tool? • Anything used as a means of performing an operation or achieving an end. • When might you want to use them? • When you wish to apply the approach explained in a guidance note. • Where can you find them? • Some are included within the guidance notes. • Others are provided separately (accessible via the website). • Others have been integrated into the website itself.

  19. What tools are provided? • 1. Activity Chart (ppt) • 2. Information Chart (xls) • 3. Flood Risk Indicator Selection Tables (xls) • 4. Flood Risks to People Calculator (xls) • 5. Assessment Check-List (doc) • 6. Risk to People Lookup Tables (doc) • 7. Safe Access and Exit Lookup Table (doc) • 8. FRA Lookup Tables of Roles and Responsibilities (doc) Integral parts of website Provided separately Included in guidance notes

  20. It is important to remember… • Some interpretation of the guidance from your perspective may be required. • For Example • If you are not required to undertake a particular activity, you may be responsible for doing one or more of the following: • Providing guidance to developers or planning authorities regarding undertaking the activity; • Checking that it has been done by developers or planning authorities; or • Providing an opinion regarding appropriateness of what has been undertaken.

  21. It is ALSO important to remember… • The R&D project covers all scales of development planning (i.e. national, regional, local and site specific) and all types of assessment (e.g. NaFRA, CFMPs, SMPs, SFRAs and FRAs). • Therefore, • not ALL parts of the framework, • not ALL guidance notes and • not ALL of the tools would be used by you on a regular basis. • This R&D project is providing the “whole picture”, but not all of the detail. References to existing guidance, etc. are used to provide the missing detail.

  22. Final summing up • The project outputs from FD2320 provide useful updates on latest science and best practice (and links them together) for use in planning liaison and development control. • Anyone reviewing assessments of flood risk (at any scale) will be able to obtain sufficient information (or references to other documents) that will enable them to make meaningful comments regarding the appropriateness of the assessment and the development proposed.
