Local Plan Flooding Sequential Test
This report sets out the Sequential Test and Exception Test of flood risk in North Tyneside specifically focussed on the proposed development sites in the Local Plan.
Surface Water Management Plan
Surface water management plans (SWMP) investigate local flooding issues. SWMPs should identify options to mitigate local flooding and incorporate a realistic action plan to implement or deliver the agreed management measures.
The plan will provide a strategic approach through which key local partners, with responsibility for surface water and drainage, can work together.
Water Cycle Study
When looking at the future growth of North Tyneside and the development of more buildings for residential and employment purposes, it is vital to consider the impact upon the existing water and sewage infrastructure.
The WCS suggests the most appropriate methods to improve the infrastructure, if necessary, or indicate that certain development proposals be adjusted to reduce costs where possible. The study also considers the risks of potential flooding.
Strategic Flood Risk Assessment
The SFRA is presented across two separate volumes, and is referred to as the North Tyneside SFRA Volume I and II.
Volume I introduces the SFRA process provides a brief understanding of the mechanisms of flooding and flood risk for those new to the subject.
Volume II provides the technical information and methods used in the assessment of flood risk across North Tyneside. The main sections within the report focus on the assessment of all sources of flooding include; fluvial, tidal, surface water, sewers, groundwater and reservoirs and other artificial sources.
