Flood Risk Assessment
National Planning Policy Framework - Development & Flood Risk 

"A site-specific flood risk assessment is required for proposals of 1 hectare or greater in Flood Zone 1; all proposals for new development (including minor development and change of use) in Flood Zones 2 and 3,"

Many developments now require a Flood Risk Assessment to be approved by the Environment Agency through the Local Planning Authority planning procedures. National Planning Policy Framework and the accompanying guidance document provide the framework to identify suitable development sites and ensure the future built environment is safe from flood risk.

Aqua-Tech Consultancy will prepare a site specific Flood Risk Assessment report proportionate to the scale of your development proposal to inform the development, to ensure it is safe from flood risk from all sources and will not increase flood risk elsewhere.

"The Flood Risk Assessment is a thorough appraisal of the relevant issues and potential sources of flooding and is to be applauded." - Environment Agency consultation response to Exmoor National Park Authority (residential development in Dulverton)
