To support the Local Flood Risk Management Strategy we are developing a series of Flood Risk Management Plans for drainage catchments within the East Riding. These involve producing studies including hydraulic models to benchmark existing flood risk in East Riding communities. These studies provide the evidence base for future investment, leading on to future flood alleviation schemes.
The following map indicates drainage catchments in the East Riding:

The first Flood Risk Management Plan that we have produced is for the Kingston upon Hull and Haltemprice catchment (within East Riding of Yorkshire). This was prepared alongside the Local Flood Risk Management Strategy and formally adopted by the council on 18 November 2015.
The Environment Agency and partners are carrying out consultation for the Humber Flood Risk Management Plan (FRMP2) on 22 October 2021 to 22 January 2022. The Humber FRMP2 will be for the period 2021 to 2027.
The Humber FRMP2 details both the catchment areas (Hull and East Riding) and Flood Risk Areas (FRAs) within the East Riding as well as across the Humber River Basin District. All FRAs have been identified nationally where there is a potential for significant risk or impact should major flooding occur.
The FRAs in the East Riding include:
- Kingston Upon Hull & Haltemprice FRA (surface water flooding)
- Kingston Upon Hull & Haltemprice FRA (rivers & sea flooding)
- Goole FRA (rivers & sea flooding)
- Gilberdyke FRA (rivers & sea flooding)
- Hedon FRA (rivers & sea flooding)
- Hessle FRA (rivers & sea flooding)
- Thorngumbald FRA (rivers & sea flooding)
For the Kingston & Haltemprice FRA, the Humber FRMP2 reviews and updates our Kingston Upon Hull & Haltemprice Flood Risk Management Plan 2015:

The Humber FRMP2 will also contain measures for each area and is available on the Environment Agency's consultation website:
