Flood Map for Planning NRW Local Model Manager

Natural Resources Wales

The Flood Map for Planning (FMfP) supports Welsh Government planning policy on flood risk and is the starting point for consideration of flood risk in the planning system. It provides an indication to which land is at risk of flooding from rivers, the sea and surface water and small watercourses, taking account the impacts of climate change over the next 100 years. The FMfP is the key dataset to inform and guide decision making about future development.

The ‘NRW Local Model Manager’ shows the location of NRW’s detailed, local flood models which can be requested via datadistribution@naturalresourceswales.gov.uk

NRW Local Model Manager is updated biannually to show up-to-date coverage of NRW’s flood models. Email datadistribution@naturalresourceswales.gov.uk to see if additional model data is available that is not displayed in the NRW Local Model Manager.

All information supplied by NRW needs to be verified by the recipient PRIOR to using in a Flood Consequences Assessment (FCA) or modelling study.

It is the sole responsibility of the user of the data to ensure it is fit for purpose for the intended end use.
