Surface Water Management Plan

Guildford Surface Water Management Plan and Ash Surface Water Study

To sustainably manage the risk of surface water causing floods, we carried out two projects:

  • Guildford Surface Water Management Plan
  • Ash Surface Water Study

We, along with Surrey County Council and the Environment Agency, commissioned Halcrow Group Ltd. to undertake both projects.

Our aims were to:

  • identify schemes which will reduce flood risks in key places
  • gather enough evidence to apply for the Government's Flood Defence Grant in Aid (FDGiA) scheme funding
  • prepare an evidence base to help us target land drainage maintenance work effectively
  • prepare a strategy for managing flood risks that can inform our development control process
