Important: The spot height shown refer to the land around properties or, for roads the lowest point, that is the rain water gutter next to the kerb. The height of the ground floor level in a property will be significantly higher than the land outside the property. In older houses the difference is typically 0.3m to 0.5m, for newer properties it may be greater still. This difference must be taken into account when assessing flood risk.
