Are you considering or planning a development?
Is it in an area that may be at risk of flooding or might your development have some potential flooding impact on your neighbours?
Have you produced a drainage strategy?
Do you need to incorporate sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) into the design of the site?
If so, you will need to make sure that the impact of your development on flooding and drainage is taken into consideration at an early stage, so that you can take the appropriate measures to obtain planning consent as the development proceeds.
It may be that a relatively simple Flood Risk Assessment will show little or no impact, or it may be that your proposed development requires a clear sustainable drainage strategy before planning consent is forthcoming. It may even be that the risk to flooding is such that it would be very unlikely that the development would be approved.
However big or small the potential impact, it is important that you identify and address the key flood risk and drainage issues as soon as possible.
You will want to take the right decisions in a timely fashion, fully aware of the options available, so that you can manage the development costs and reduce the time to completion whilst maximising profit.
Alternatively, maybe you have a property which floods or is at risk of flooding and you would like to know what actions you can take to minimise the risk of future flooding and its resultant disruption and expense.
