Strategic flood risk assessment

Strategic flood risk assessment

This study was commissioned by Chesterfield Borough Council in partnership with North East Derbyshire and Bolsover, covering all three districts. The consultants responsible were Faber Maunsell. The final report was published in March 2009. It gives an up-to-date picture of flood risk over the whole area and advice on policies the three councils may wish to include in their LDFs.
