Is the problem likely to spread?

The council does not believe homes outside the designated hazard area to be at risk. However our assessment is extending beyond the current hazard zone to ensure that we are maximising our knowledge of the risk.

The Hazard Risk Map was developed to establish the extent of the risk to residential properties

The map has been revised and updated to ensure its accuracy over the years. We will continue to update it in light of the outcome of further investigations.
