SWEL have been commissioned to prepare a flood risk assessment for a mixed use development in Bristol.
The scheme comprises of commercial use of the ground floor, with residential use above. This is a favorable situation, as the ground floor use is less vulnerable as define in the planning practice guidance.
This FRA is prepared for the purposes of providing a generalised indication of the potential flood risk to the site, and to identify whether there are any flooding or surface water management issues relating to the development site that may warrant further consideration.
Bristol is a varied city with regards to flood risk. Some of the hilly areas see very rapid lowering in flood risk moving away from water courses, however area to the west such as Avonmouth experience large areas of low lying ground in Zone 3a which can be problematic from a planning perspective.
There are numerous culvert water courses in Bristol, where rivers has been built over, and now run in tunnels under central areas.
The flood risk assessment will be prepared on a quick turnaround and supplied to the client in a PDF format.
The use of secondary data will aid in providing this report on a quick turnaround.
