Flood Check

A flood check is a very simple document detailing the likely flood exposure of a site location from applicable sources for clients who require a quick overview of flood risk.

Flood exposure is determined using readily available generic flood modelling or risk mapping sourced from the following:

· The Environment Agency (England)

· Natural Resources Wales (Wales)

· The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (Scotland)

· Local Authority/Council

If the location in question is shown at negligible risk from all sources investigated then further assessment will not be necessary, however, if shown at risk further investigation will be recommended to quantify the flood risk to existing buildings/assets or any proposed development.
