Taking flood risk seriously
Severe flooding events and an increased awareness of the effects of climate change have brought the causes and effects of flooding into focus. UK planning policy requires flood risk assessments at sites at risk of flooding and sites where flooding may be the result of run-off from a development.
We offer full flood risk assessments to potential development sites in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and the associated Planning Practice Guide (PPG) and its equivalents in Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.
Our experienced team has excellent relations with the Environmental Regulatory Bodies (The Environment Agency, Natural Resources Wales, SEPA, Lead Local Flood Risk Authorities etc) allowing delays to gaining planning permission to be minimized by anticipating requirements for compliance with flood prevention policy.
