Flood Risk Assessments are undertaken in accordance with Planning Policy Statement 25:
Development & Flood Risk (PPS25) and its equivalents in Scotland (SPP7), Wales (TAN15)
and Northern Ireland (PPS25). BHA Consulting Ltd provides a comprehensive service
assessing flood risk from all sources and providing mitigation measures for the potential
flood risks that new development can create. We undertake assessments for many residential, commercial and industrial developments throughout the UK, with experience ranging from large mixed use developments exceeding 50ha to smaller individual plots.
Nottingham: A mixed use development consisting of a supermarket with residential
apartments located at first floor level. BHA were commissioned by David Futter Associates
Ltd to undertake a Flood Risk Assessment to investigate the fluvial and surface water flood
risks and provide appropriate mitigation in accordance with PPS25.
Great Yarmouth, Norfolk: A mixed use development located along the sea front consisting
of 6 no. residential apartments located on the first and second floors and a bar/restaurant
on the ground floor. BHA were commissioned by Pelorus to undertake a Flood Risk
Assessment to investigate the tidal flood risk from the North Sea and provide appropriate
mitigation in accordance with PPS25.
Campsea Ash, Suffolk: A small residential development consisting of 21 no. dwellings with
associated private drives and parking court areas located in a rural village. Commissioned
by Bloor Homes, BHA investigated the surface water drainage options for the development
in accordance with PPS25. The final design consisted of deep soakaways where soil conditions were found to be suitable below the upper band
Watton, Norfolk: A mid sized development consisted of 150 no. dwellings with associated
adoptable highway, private drives and parking court areas. BHA investigated the surface
water drainage options for the development in accordance with PPS25 following a commission by Bennett Homes. The surface water drainage strategy is based on an attenuated discharge to a nearby watercourse as soil conditions were found to be unsuitable for infiltration drainage techniques.
