The following measures are recommended to further mitigate flood risk:
- Residential use shall be excluded from Flood Zone B.
- The site specific Flood Risk Assessment for any development on these lands should be carried out in accordance with Appendix A of the Guidelines. The site specific FRA may result in the boundary of the flood zones being amended.
- Flood risk management should be addressed in the design of any development on these lands, in accordance with Appendix B of the Guidelines.
- The management of surface water on the site shall accord with the policies and objectives of the current Kilkenny County Development Plan 2014-2020 and the Local Area plan 2009-2020. Details of the management of surface water on the site shall be provided at planning application stage.
This SFRA is based on currently available data and in accordance with its status as a “living document” it will be subject to modification by these emerging datasets of maps and plans as they become available. In the interim any development proposal on the subject site will be subject to a site specific Flood Risk Assessment.
