Quality Reports

When applying for planning permission it is important to get a high quality, detailed assessment produced by experience flood risk consultants to satisfy the needs of the Local Authority, and in some instances the Environment Agency. A number of quick and low cost products are currently available on the market however in our experience these fail to address the requirements stated within the National Planning Policy Framework and thus fail to secure the required planning permission. Our detailed, area and sector specific, assessments are the best way to ensure that the desired planning outcome is obtained within a costly and timely manner. Our in-house consultancy team use the latest software combined with vast local knowledge and years of experience liaising with authorities to build robust reports that ensure the needs of all parties are met.

Give us a call and one of our consultancy team will be on hand to personally create an assessment suitable to your circumstances and needs.

Our aim? To get the report you need, when you need it and to make sure you get the planning approval you require.
