Flooding is a major contributor to personal injury and damage to property within the United Kingdom. Problems relating to flooding have increased in frequency within the last century due to rapid urban population expansion and the development of extensive infrastructures, coupled with the effects of climate change. The effects of climate change are expected to become more prevalent due to increased volumes of rainfall, which in turn is likely to exacerbate the risks of flooding to commercial and residential properties.

A L Daines and Partners LLP have extensive experience of providing flood risk assessments in relation to planning applications and feasibility studies for prospective developments, and more recently, the subsequent development of flood risk management strategies, mitigation, and flood defence design.

Whether for a residential or commercial site, a Flood Risk Assessment (FRA) identifies these risks and mitigation measures for you. Our flood risk assessment evaluates flood sources and makes your development safe and compliant with flood risk legislation at the planning stage.
