We can provide flood risk assessments (FRAs) to planners, developers, and conveyancers throughout the UK.

As a specialist flood and environmental risk consultancy, we provide a full range of services to test, collate, and submit a flood risk assessment for UK planning applications. We can work with any size of development and our experience with submitting planning proposals to local and national planning authorities saves you time and money as we know exactly what they’re looking for.

Flood risk assessments are now a requirement for any site over one hectare, or any development planned for a Zone 2 or Zone 3 flood risk area. This is where our level of knowledge and experience will really be helpful - we support developers every day to get their planning approved in flood risk areas.

We can help you fully understand your flood risks, meet your planning application requirements, and recommend strategies to address complex flood risks that could stand in the way of you getting planning approval.
