Strategic Flood Risk Assessment Level 1 - Wealden District Council and Eastbourne Borough Council - September 2008 (pdf)

The objective of the Level 1 SFRA are to collate and review available information on flood risk for the study area. The information has been sourced from a variety of stakeholders including the Environment Agency, Eastbourne Borough Council, Wealden District Council, East Sussex County Council, and Southern Water.

Strategic Flood Risk Assessment Level 2 - Wealden District Council and Eastbourne Borough Council - July 2009

The aim of this study is to provide supplementary information to the Level 1 SFRA on specific tidal flood risk issues. This supplementary information will be used to determine the suitability of key development areas in areas of flood risk.

Flood Risk Zones for fluvial and tidal flooding in South Hailsham (pdf)

This plan shows the flood risk zones for fluvial and tidal flooding in South Hailsham. This information provides further detail which is contained within the Level 1 Strategic Flood Risk Assessment for South Wealden and Eastbourne.

The green outline on the map shows tidal flood zone 2 incorporating climate change (and excluding defences) and therefore provides the maximum extent of flood risk for tidal flooding in the area.

Fluvial flood zone 2 shown as a light turquoise line with a similar colour dash within the zone is provided by the Environment Agency. This does not take into account climate change and potential future changes in flood risk and therefore the plan must be viewed in this context.
