Flood Risk Assessment - Battersea - London
Acting on Instruction from an Architect Southwest Environmental Limited have begun preparation of a flood risk assessment in Battersea, London.
The proposed development is for a property refurbishment with a basement extension. The flood risk assessment will look at fluvial, tidal and surface water flooding risks.
We will also make an appraisal of flood defences in the area. Most of the flood defences along the Thames are being upgraded to account for climate change, and as such provide a 1:1000 year protection levels provided they are no breached.
The proposed development does not include sleeping of primary living accommodation at basement level, this is advisable as the Environment Agency will Ilkley object to sleeping accommodation in basements, when in Flood Zones 2 or 3.
