Flood Risk Assessment

JBA "wrote the book"

The Planning System and Flood Risk Management: Guidelines for Planning Authorities

JBA was commissioned by the OPW, Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine and the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government to produce a guidance document for planners, engineers and developers that will ensure that flood risk will be fully considered during the development plan making stage and also in the design of the built environment in flood risk areas. The guidance is drawn from a thorough understanding of the planning system, development pressures and expectations, and the need to introduce a managed approach to flood risk that will assist in the delivery of the EU Floods Directive.
