We have added a new online public register of Flood Risk Activity exemptions. An exemption is for work on or near a main river or sea defence that is exempt from needing an environmental permit, but needs to be registered with us.
The information is available via the Online Public Register application, part of the data sharing platform, with searchable fields to aid the user in finding the correct exemption.
The register can be found here - https://environment.data.gov.uk/public-register/view/search-flood-risk-exemptions
It is also available via a linked data API, allowing developers to access the data directly and use within their own applications. Supporting documentation can be found here - https://environment.data.gov.uk/public-register/view/api-reference
The service is currently in Beta Public and we would appreciate your feedback on this new system. You can also use the link in the explorer to let us know what you think about this tool so far.
