Flood risk

In 2014 -2015 we worked with Wandsworth, Croydon and Sutton Councils to collate and analyse the most up-to date flood risk information for our boroughs. The assessment will inform the plan-making process and ensure new developments steer clear of high-risk flood areas.

The report is currently being finalised. A public consultation will be held once it's complete. The maps that accompany the report are published below.

If you require further information on the mapping, you can email the Environment Agency and ask for a formal data request.
