Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (Level 1)

Derbyshire Dales District Council, High Peak Borough Council and the Peak District National Park Authority commissioned Halcrow, in December 2007, to produce a Level 1 Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA), according to Planning Policy Statement 25 (PPS25).

The SFRA is a tool which will:

  • inform us of the nature of flood risk in the area
  • provide an important part of the Local Development Framework (LDF) evidence base, particularly the Core Strategy.
  • provide useful information for the Sustainability Appraisal (SA)
  • assist in the development of appropriate flood risk management policies

Peak Sub Region Climate Change Study

The Peak Sub-Region Climate Change Study has been produced by National Energy Foundation to assess the capacity of the Peak Sub-Region to accommodate renewable energy generation.

The study considers the capacity and potential for an energy supply derived from renewables and low carbon technologies across the Peak Sub-Region. It has been prepared in conjunction with a landscape sensitivity study and so evaluates the impact of renewable energy technologies, such as wind turbines on the Peak Sub-Region landscape.
