Flood Risk and Drainage – Taylor Wimpey


We were asked to prepare a Flood Risk Assessment (FRA) to support a planning application for a residential development. Although situated in Flood Zone 1, an FRA is required as for any site greater than 1 hectare in area. Consultation with the EA, Ellesmere Port, Neston Borough Council and United Utilities indicated only at low risk of flooding. However the local authority raised concerns over the potential for flooding from the adjacent canal.
