Manage our future flood risk


Tidal flooding from the River Avon has the potential to cause severe damage to the city centre. Bristol’s Central Area Flood Risk Assessment (CAFRA) predicts that the current trend of rising sea levels will accelerate due to the impact of climate change, causing the likelihood of tidal flooding in central Bristol. A strategy is being developed to recommend an adaptive programme, identify when flood risk management interventions are needed and examine how they will be funded.
