Flooding and surface water drainage

The Environment Agency (EA) flood maps for planning show that the majority of the site falls within Flood Zone 1, which has a low probability of flooding. The site lies partially in Flood Zone 2 (between a 1 in 100 and 1 in 1000 annual probability of flooding) and Flood Zone 3 (a 1 in 100 or greater annual probability of flooding) along the line of the watercourses in the south western section of the site.
