SITE SPECIFIC FLOOD RISK ASSESSMENT
Flood risk is now a material consideration in determining planning applications. Flood risk assessments may be required in cases where the development site lies within a modelled flood plain or in the vicinity of a fluvial or tidal watercourse or where a development site is over one hectare in size.
The type of assessments we perform range from simple screening reports (Level 1 PPS25) through to detailed flood risk reports including mitigation works (Level 3 PPS25) and river modelling using HEC-RAS modelling software.
Assessments can be undertaken at the pre or post application stage depending on your requirements.
- Improved chances of obtaining planning permission
- Improved communication with regulatory authorities
- You as a client will obtain a better understanding of issues involved
- Reduced risk of hold ups in the planning application process
