Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment

As a Lead Local Flood Authority, Coventry City Council was required by The Flood Risk Regulations (2009) to prepare a Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment (PFRA). Coventry’s PFRA was published in 2011 and then reviewed in 2017, in accordance with the requirements of the regulations.

The PFRA is an exercise to identify areas where there is significant flood risk, known as Flood Risk Areas.

The PFRA covers the risk of flooding from local sources, namely Ordinary Watercourses, surface water (overland runoff) and groundwater. It does not directly consider flooding from main rivers, such as the River Sowe and parts of the River Sherbourne.  The Environment Agency is still responsible for flooding from main rivers.

The PFRA report looks at past flooding and where future flooding might occur across the City and the consequences that might have to people, properties and the environment, including cultural heritage and ecology. The report helps us to develop our strategy to manage local flooding in Coventry.
