What flood zone 3 means

Land within flood zone 3 has a high probability of flooding from rivers and the sea.

You need to carry out a flood risk assessment (FRA) as part of the planning application for this development.

What the flood map shows

The flood zones in the map show the areas of land at risk of flooding. They:

  • only show flood risk from rivers and the sea
  • are based on present day flood risk, they do not show how it may change in future because of climate change
  • ignore the effect any flood defences shown could have

Download the flood map for this location

The flood map is suitable for a local planning authority to use when checking a planning application to see if a development is:

  • in flood zone 1, 2 or 3
  • within 20 metres of a main river or a flood defence
  • a water storage area (also likely to be flood zone 3b in the SFRA)
Add a reference to the flood map and set the scale

Optional. This is chosen by you to help you find the report later and should be less than 25 characters.

Decide what you need for your planning application

You should:

  • contact Huntingdonshire local planning authority to check their planning requirements
  • get an FRA, you'll normally need to pay a flood risk specialist to carry it out

Order flood risk data for rivers and the sea

The flood risk data usually includes:

  • detailed flood data
  • historic flood event data
  • modelled flood levels and extents
  • flood defence locations and attributes

We aim to email you the data within 20 working days or sooner if we can.

Order flood risk data

For developments in flood zone 3, your FRA should include an assessment of all sources of flooding and take into account climate change allowances.
