Ambiental were approached by St Paul’s School in London to undertake a NPPF compliant Flood Risk Assessment (FRA) and Environmental Impact Assessment Chapter for Flood Risk and Surface Water Drainage (Water). The development was for a minor material amendment of an existing planning permission for the ongoing redevelopment of the building. The existing planning was granted planning permission in 2009.
The development was considered suitable assuming appropriate, maintainable mitigation was put in place, including adequate warning procedures and an evacuation plan. The development went on to get planning approval and building is already underway.
