This topic is rapidly growing in prevalence and now affects more development and other planning applications than ever before. Stringent guidelines issued by the Environment Agency specify when a Flood Risk Assessment is required, with local authorities having a duty to ensure that the correct type of report is submitted with any application. Renaissance has developed a new product to respond to this need. When planning departments impose conditions requesting Flood Risk Assessment we can help in a prompt and affordable fashion.
Homecheck Professional Flood
The Flood Report gives a more detailed insight into the issue of flooding for a residential property. The report gives an assessment of flood risk, maps of potential flood risk and an important insight into the insurability of a property against flooding.
The Homecheck Flood report is offered at £24.00 inclusive of VAT.
Flood Risk Review - (Commercial & Agricultural)
This product is new to the Renaissance range and fills the gap between residential and a small property flood assessment and the bespoke Flood Risk Assessment used for full planning consent. It is a very thorough flood assessment particularly suited to larger property, development land and farms or estates of practically any size.
The report gives a variety of risk profiles and comment for fluvial (river), tidal, pluvial (rainfall), and groundwater flooding. The report is based on the best available data and maps and includes a computer modelled map range and insurance claim history as well as all the standard flooding predictions.
The Flood Risk Review represents excellent value and is available at the following rates: 5-250 Ha £129; 50+ Ha requiring more than one data and map pack: from £229; (please request quotation). Prices are subject to VAT.
Flood Risk Assessment - (Development & Planning)
The Renaissance Flood Risk Assessment is different from anything else on the market. Like so much of our work, we realise there is not a 'one-size-fits-all' solution to flood assessment. Generic information is readily available, as is detailed and highly priced flood modelling and quantitative analysis. Often, what is required, particularly at the planning stage, falls somewhere between these two approaches.
Our product is always generated in liaison with the local authority for efficiency, accuracy and attempts to answer the issue of flood hazard in the most concise manner.
[This product may not be appropriate for very large projects or where high level FRA support has been requested by the regulator, following existing correspondence. However, we are able to oversee or manage any project and sub-contract specialist support where required to provide an appropriate final outcome].
The Flood Risk Assessment is available from £280 plus VAT for small developments or post planning reports. However, the price is dependent on the exact requirement of each situation and a no obligation quotation will be given prior to any work being undertaken.
