Resources for local flood risk assessment

A new framework, developed by the Environment Agency, aims to help local authorities better understand and manage their flood risk. It recognises new statutory responsibilities for flood and coastal risk management in England and Wales and supports robust, consistent risk assessment across different spatial scales. Users can get access to the research summary, methodology report, prototype tool and quick start guidance. The prototype tool can be downloaded as either a compiled version suitable for end users, or as source code for those who wish to build on the prototype tool.
