Flood Risk

Flood Risk

At a time of increased flood risk and greater awareness of the effects of climate change, you can rely on our track record of delivering the most challenging of flood risk management schemes.

Depending on the location and nature of the proposed development, our flood risk assessments can vary from basic desk studies through to detailed hydraulic modelling. Regardless of scale, they’ll consider the potential for flooding (both to and from your proposed development), help you address specific planning authority and Environment Agency concerns, and secure planning permission in the shortest possible timeframe. Our excellent relations with the Environment Agency allow us to anticipate compliance requirements with flood prevention policy and minimise delays.

Taking into account the previous use of the site, the effects of climate change and the need for safe, flood-resistant access and exits, our experts can assess the potential impact of your development on the environment. Using our extensive knowledge of both sustainable urban drainage systems (SuDS) and traditional drainage design, we’ll then establish the most cost-effective drainage strategy for your site.

We can provide comprehensive reports and assessments for any size of development to comply with national guidance: FRA to NPPF-England, FCA to TAN15-Wales, and FRA to SPP7-Scotland.
