Development and Flood Risk Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)

You are here

Ipswich Borough Council adopted a Development and Flood Risk Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) on 18th September 2013. This document was first updated in May 2014 and has subsequently been updated in January 2016 to reflect changes to national and local policy and guidance.

The Development and Flood Risk SPD aims to assist developers and their agents in submitting appropriate flood risk and flood risk management information with planning applications to ensure the design of safe development in flood zones.

The SPD supports Core Strategy policy DM4 Development and Flood Risk.
