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.

    2021 - New Year, New Office

    Here at Thomas Consulting we are on the move….

    Exciting times after nearly 20 years in the current office at Friar Street the team are moving to a brighter, bigger accessible office at 21 China Street, Lancaster.  

    The building has been part of a development undertaken by JMP Architects at their existing site.

    The new office space has access directly off of China Street giving on-site parking for the Team and visiting clients; a rarity in Lancaster city centre.

    As soon as COVID-19 Security and Government restrictions permit, we are looking forward to inviting all our associates and clients to enjoy a little cheese and Wine event at our new home.

    We will be raising a toast to a healthy, safe and prosperous year for all.
