We would expect a full review of flood risks, especially with future climate change impacts. While development could happen in higher flood risk areas, any such developments need to be protected by inbuilt measures (such as raising the ground floor level) and assess impacts of flood defences on existing communities so the developments do not make the risk of flooding worse.
