Flood Risk Assessment – Merton

Flood Risk Assessment – Merton

SWEl have recently prepared a Flood Risk Assessment for an interesting proposed development in Merton (New Maldon).

The development sees the retention of a existing building for conversion under PD rights, and the creation of e neighbouring residential unit.

Below images show various mapping used in the compilation of the report.

Flood Extent Mapping in Merton
Modelled flood data was obtained and used in describing the site as low risk. 

Model Nodes used in 2D Models
Both 1D and 2D flood modelling data was used, the nearest water course was the Beverly Brook. 

A Considerate Design improves Planning Success
The Flood Risk Assessment also considers surface water run-off, thankfully the development was considerately designed with large areas of soft landscaping.
