Flood risk and drainage provision is a primary consideration for both new and existing developments. It is considered that climate change will lead to an increase in the risk of flooding resulting from rivers and watercourses and insufficient drainage provision.
Under Planning Policy Statement 25 (PPS25), all forms of flooding and drainage provision affected by any proposed development are to be assessed and managed as part of the planning process.
Norder are able to undertake Flood Risk Assessments and Drainage Assessments to facilitate planning applications or improve existing flooding issues at developments. Using our extensive experience in this area we provide innovative and practical solutions to mitigate the impact of development, which includes the design of compensatory washland, surface water storage facilities, soakaways and swales, as well as the design of traditional drainage systems.
