Planning Guidance Strategic Flood Risk Assessment: SEPA technical guidance to support development planning

This document explains how SEPA engages with the development plan process. It is based on SEPA s interpretation of national planning policy and duties and requirements under relevant legislation. SEPA has reprioritised its planning service to ensure that it is well placed to engage early in the plan preparation process and is committed to working jointly with planning authorities. SEPA will provide clear and consistent advice to planning authorities on flood risk within their area. The SFRA technical guidance is consistent with the more integrated and sustainable approach to flood risk management which underpins the Flood Risk Management (Scotland) Act 2009 and encourages linkages between the development planning process and the flood risk management planning process.
