Flood Risk Assessment
Planning Policy Statement 25: Development & Flood Risk
"Planning Applications for Development Proposals of 1 Hectare or greater in Flood Zone 1 and all proposals for new development in Flood Zones 2 and 3 should be accompanied by a Flood Risk Assessment."
Many developments now require a Flood Risk Assessment to be approved by the Environment Agency through the Local Planning Authority planning procedures. Planning Policy Statement 25 Development and Flood Risk 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 ensure the development is safe from flood risk from all sources and will not increase flood risk elsewhere, gaining Environment Agency or Local Planning Authority approval.
Surface Water and Land Drainage
Foul Water Drainage
All designs enhanced by the use of the latest Micro Drainage WinDes suite of industry standard drainage design software, CDS (formerly PDS) highway alignment design and ground modelling software, and plan preparation using AutoCAD.
