Flood Risk Assessments (FRA)

We are able to provide flood risk assessments (FRA) or flood consequence assessment (FCA) as they are termed in Wales, for your property or development for planning, insurance or due diligence purposes.
Flood risk assessments are required as part of a planning submission if your site is within Flood Zone 2 or 3 or is more than 1ha in flood zone 1. The FRA looks at all sources of flooding, not just from rivers and the sea. Should you require, the FRA can be supplemented with a drainage strategy for the development and flood response/evacuation plans.
