Flood Map Challenges

Experienced in helping you understand flood risk.

A successful flood map challenge can help increase land value and even negate the need for future flood risk assessments for development on the land.

What is Required?

Many areas in England are designated as flood zones 2 and 3 generated by simplified broad scale flood maps, which often overestimate the risk. If you do not think the Flood Map for Planning correctly represents your site we have the experience, software and track record to formally challenge the flood map on your behalf.

The Environment Agency have several requirements which must be provided for a formal challenge to be considered such as:

  • Creating a valid and suitable hydraulic model
  • Providing the flood extent for Flood Zone 3 and Flood Zone 2
  • A technical report and supporting information.
