Local Plan: Preferred Options Consultation

We are reviewing our adopted Local Plan. We are consulting on the Preferred Options stage NOW! The consultation closes at 4pm on Wednesday 19 June 2024. 

The Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA) provides a comprehensive and robust evidence base on flood risk issues, using the best information available.

This supports our review of the Chelmsford Local Plan and associated Planning Policy documents.

The main sources of flood risk in Chelmsford are fluvial (rivers), sea (coastal) and surface water.

How to open the maps

If you click on the links and open the maps in a browser, they may not work.

Instead, you need to right-click on the link and choose 'Save link as...', to download the map to your device. You can then open it from the saved location in Adobe Acrobat, which will give you the full functionality.

If you do not have it on your computer, you can download Adobe Acrobat Reader.
