Flood maps

Our flood maps are designed to help you understand how you could be affected by flooding. The maps show you areas which are likely to flood from rivers, the sea and surface water. The flood maps are a public tool and used by a wide variety of people for a range of work.

We currently have two map viewers available. To determine which viewer would benefit you, please find information below:
