The Council does not believe homes outside the designated hazard area to be at risk. Nevertheless the assessment work which is currently taking place is looking at a slightly larger area than that previously mapped within the Hazard Zone Map. This is intended to capture as much data as possible to clearly identify whether the size of the hazard risk area has changed over time.
The Hazard Risk Map
was developed to establish the extent of the risk to residential properties in the area.
The map has been revised and updated to ensure its accuracy over the years and we are continuing to update it in light of recent events.
