This location is in an area at very low risk of flooding

Even if flooding doesn't threaten your location directly, it may still affect:

  • transport
  • power
  • communications networks

All information, particularly the likelihood of surface water flooding, is a general indicator of an area’s flood risk. As such it is not suitable for identifying whether an individual property will flood. This service uses computer models to assess an area’s long term flood risk from rivers, the sea, surface water and some groundwater. It does not include flood risk from sources such as blocked drains and burst pipes.

Detailed flood risk information for this area

Rivers and sea icon

The flood risk from rivers or the sea is very low

What this means

Very low risk means that each year this area has a chance of flooding of less than 0.1%. This takes into account the effect of any flood defences in the area. These defences reduce, but do not completely stop the chance of flooding as they can be overtopped, or fail.

How to use this information

You can use this information to see which areas are more likely to flood first, deepest, or most often.

Planning a development

This information is not suitable for use in land-use planning. If you’re planning a development, you must use the Risk of Flooding for Land-Use Planning (Rivers and Sea) for England or Development Advisory Map for Wales. This is information based on flooding without defences.

Surface water icon

The flood risk from surface water is very low

What this means

Very low risk means that each year this area has a chance of flooding of less than 0.1%. Flooding from surface water is difficult to predict as rainfall location and volume are difficult to forecast. In addition, local features can greatly affect the chance and severity of flooding.

Surface water flood risk information is not suitable for identifying whether an individual property will flood. It gives an indication of the broad areas likely to be affected but is imprecise due to national assumptions made about rainfall, surface water run-off, topography and the stormwater drainage network.

Because of this, we report the highest risk within 20m of a specific location, such as an individual property. This means reports for neighbouring properties may show different levels of risk.

How to use this information

You can use this information to see the approximate areas that would flood, and which parts would be shallower or deeper.

This information is suitable for identifying which parts of towns or streets are at risk, or have the most risk. It's also suitable for identifying the approximate extent and depth of flooding. It's likely to be reliable for a local area but not for identifying individual properties at risk.
