We were appointed to prepare a flood risk management scheme for a private house and garden that was experiencing regular flooding due to its proximity to a watercourse.
- We suggested a range of measures for the protection of the house, including construction of a floodwall and removable floodgates
- To compensate for the resulting reduction of flood capacity we worked in close collaboration with the client and the Environment Agency to devise a sustainable scheme that protects the wider parts of the house from flooding and satisfies all parties, whilst working with a Listed Building
- We managed the planning application Listed Building consent application
- Johns Associates provided mapping for the measures, which were submitted with the planning application
Johns Associates anticipated and mitigated in advance for potential issues with the planning application, which has been approved. The works will be carried out later this year.
