Since our Strategic Flood Risk Assessment was published the Environment Agency has amended the flood zones for the borough. The most up to date flood zones can be viewed on the Environment Agency's website. These should be viewed in conjunction with the SFRA. We have produced revised maps to reflect this up to date advice.
