When a potential flood risk is identified by either SEPA, the Environment Agency or the Local Authority on a proposed development site then a flood risk assessment is required before Planning approval. Our experience demonstrates that early engagement with the regulatory authorities can ensure risk management is dealt with constructively, easing the approval process.
Early assessment means that flood mitigation measures, where required, can be incorporated into the development design as a site goes forward through planning. By appreciating potential flood risk at the outset, cost effective design measures can be tabled for approval by the regulators. This may include minimising the potential impact on other developments, consideration of extra drainage provision, protective earthworks or compensatory flood plain.
Our team has over 30 years’ experience and provide site specific advice on all aspects of flood risk, including development scheme feasibility and risk management requirements in order to achieve a cost effective solution.
