Flood Risk Assessments for Planning Applications in Argyll, Highland and throughout Scotland
The assessment of flood risk is a local planning authority condition when building in or near designated flood risk zones in Scotland. The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) may be a statutory consultee in the planning process and although they may not object to a development proposal the Local Authority may still require a flood risk assessment to be carried out.
We carry out flood risk assessment work for any type or scale of existing or proposed development. Our experience spans large developments involving a number of residential dwellings or commercial buildings through to care homes, schools, social developments and single dwelling house plots. We are proficient in all types of flooding whether the perceived risk is coastal, fluvial or surface water.
TransTech covers all aspects of flood risk assessment including site survey, liaison with SEPA and the Local Planning Authority’s Flood Risk Management Team, determination of historical flooding, hydraulic modelling where required and report production for submission to regulators.
