Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment Report

The Flood Risk Regulations (FRR) 2009 and the Flood and Water Management Act (FWMA) 2010 place significant new duties on Liverpool City Council in identifying and managing flood risk.

The FRRs require Lead Local Flood Authorities (LLFA) to produce Flood Risk Management Plans by 2015 and Defra have produced a four-year programme that LLFAs must comply with to meet these objectives. The first element of this programme is the production of a Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment (PFRA) submission, which comprises this document, supporting spreadsheets and GIS layer.
