Sequential Test for Planning Application – Catterick, North Yorkshire
It can be the case that planning authorities will take exception to a particular project and make requests for all kinds of extra information, to support the application, at a level of detial that would not normally be required.
Southwest Environmental were approached by a developer who was building a number of residential units in a Flood Zone 3. An initial flood risk assessment had been undertaken previously by a consultant and appeared to be of sufficient detail, however the local planning authority required extra clarification with regards to the sequential test.
SWEL have an well proven method for carrying out sequential test, and this was applied once more in this instance.
The project was well considered with regards to flood risk, the buildings design and choice of materials were well chosen.
