Areas benefiting from flood defences

Hi,

I've been informed by some regional staff that this dataset is going to be phased out, and some offices are no longer updating it already. Can you confirm whether this is the case, and if so, what timescales there are for its removal?

Thanks

Drew

Hi Drew,

Thank you for your question. 

We currently have no plans to phase out Areas Benefiting from Defences. 

We do and will continue to review how we produce them taking into account our and our customer’s needs, In the future NaFRA2 will form the core of our Flood Risk Mapping so there will be changes and we expect to see these changes in and from 2024.

I hope this helps.
