Providing demographic and flood risk intelligence for East Lindsey District Council
The Lincolnshire Coastal Study addressed coastal flooding issues and proposed a set of principles and options for spatial development in East Lindsey, along with its neighbouring areas of Boston and South Holland. The study included the strategic aims to provide only sufficient housing in the zones of the highest flood risk, and to hold the population ‘broadly stable’ over the plan period.
Within this context, East Lindsey requested a range of demographic evidence to support its Strategic Housing Market Assessment. Edge Analytics provided this evidence, which was used to inform the planning process for the district, whilst providing demographic intelligence on the geographical areas classified by the Environment Agency as having the highest flood risk.
