Flood risk along with other sustainable development principles has to be taken into account at all levels of the planning system. The Strategic Flood Risk Assessment for North and North East Lincolnshire has been prepared in response to government advice on flooding and development.
In 2006 North East Lincolnshire Council working with North Lincolnshire Council and the Environment Agency prepared a Strategic Flood Risk Assessment for North and North East Lincolnshire.
This assessment has now been reviewed to take account of new data and to reflect the requirements of Planning Policy Statement 25: Development and Flood Risk.
