Having supported many planning applications ESI has built an excellent relationship with the various Environment Agency regional offices and with local authority planning officers. Local planning authorities are likely to request a flood risk assessment for any site which is situated on the modelled flood plain and within the vicinity of a fluvial or tidal watercourse. Flood risk assessments are also requested in areas of low fluvial or tidal flood risk if a proposed development is over one hectare in size and/or lies within a critical drainage area. Certain areas are also susceptible to groundwater flooding; under such conditions, ESI can provide impact assessments for basement construction.Dedicated points of contact: “I was very pleased with the work that ESI undertook for us.
