This one day course outlines the requirements for Flood Risk Assessments at a site-specific scale for individual sites.
Reference will be made to the relevance of Strategic Flood Risk Assessments and Catchment Flood Management Plans. The course does not include detailed training on hydrological assessment, hydraulic modelling, or the design of SuDS, please see ‘Related courses’.
This course is aimed at:
- Those undertaking studies for proposed developments
- Professionals carrying out Flood Risk Assessments
- Managers and regulators involved in reviewing and approving FRAs
This course provides an overview of current planning policy and the regulatory background behind the need for FRAs and surface water drainage, the scope, content and purpose of FRAs and the methodologies within these studies.
