Flood studies and investigations

Staffordshire preliminary flood risk assessment

One of our statutory obligations arising from the Flood Risk Regulations 2009 is to undertake a preliminary flood risk assessment (PFRA). These are required to be updated on a rolling 6 year basis.

The purpose of the PFRA is to assess surface water flooding from readily available information obtained through a data collection exercise on past and future flooding.

The assessment identifies any flood risk areas, firstly of national significance and then of local significance.

We completed our first preliminary flood risk assessment in 2011 and this is available from the Environment Agency website.

Section 19 flood investigations

Under the Flood and Water Management Act 2010, we, in our role as a lead local flood authority, has a duty to investigate significant flood events and make public its findings. As stated in our local flood risk management strategy, we define a significant flood as one where either 5 or more residential buildings or 2 or more commerical properties were affected.
