A specialist desktop flood risk assessment with full data analysis and consultant review.

From the overall risk assessment, to risk commentaries, through to bespoke recommendations, a consultant has determined what is appropriate on a site-specific basis, following the review of:

  • A comprehensive range of flood data for river, coastal, surface water and groundwater that has been analysed and compared to others in detail prior to selection,
  • Environment Agency verified flood events in detail which will include the size, date of event and source, as well as the elevation of the site above the event
  • Surrounding watercourses, including watercourse size, type and elevation of site above
  • Aerial photography and where possible street-level imagery

What this report includes: 

  • Expert consultant review of flood data and site setting 
  • Analysis including elevation above watercourses and historical flood events 
  • Assessment of overall risk of flooding with and without flood defences 
  • Action required under NPPF to secure planning approval 
  • Indication of insurance availability

Argyll specialises in land contamination and flood risk assessment and this is reflected in our reports. We and clients do not see value in adding data for data’s sake. This is why our reports remain specialist environmental reports with proper risk commentary, opinions and advice, not a report that looks to cover anything and everything.
