Parish flood maps

The following flood maps show the risk of flooding in certain areas of the Newark and Sherwood district.

The maps also highlights where the owner of a watercourse is either the Environment Agency or Newark Area Internal Drainage Board.

The Environment Agency has classified geographical areas into 1 of 3 zones, depending on how likely a flood is.


Zone 1
Lowest probability of flooding from rivers and the sea, where the chance of flooding in any one year is less than 0.1% (i.e. a 1000 in 1 chance).

Zone 2
An area with the chance of flooding in any one year between 0.1% and 1% fluvial or 0.5% tidal (i.e. between a 1000 to 1 and a 100 to 1 fluvial or 200 to 1 tidal chance). The outer edge of this zone is referred to as the 'Extreme Flood Outline' (EFO). 

Zone 3
Chance of flooding in any one year is greater than or equal to 1% (i.e. a 100 to 1 chance) for river flooding and greater or equal to 0.5% (i.e. a 200 to 1 chance) for coastal and tidal flooding.
