Surface water

Very low risk

What this information means

This flood risk summary reports the highest risk from surface water within a 20m radius of this property.

Very low risk means that each year this area has a chance of flooding of less than 0.1%.

This information is suitable for identifying:

  • which parts of counties or towns are at risk, or have the most risk
  • the approximate extent and depth of flooding

It’s unlikely to be reliable for a local area and very unlikely to be reliable for identifying individual properties at risk.

Surface water flooding, sometimes known as flash flooding:

  • happens when heavy rain cannot drain away
  • is difficult to predict as it depends on rainfall volume and location
  • can happen up hills and away from rivers and other bodies of water
  • is more widespread in areas with harder surfaces like concrete

Lead local flood authorities (LLFA) are responsible for managing the flood risk from surface water and may hold more detailed information.

Your LLFA is Buckinghamshire council.
