Flood Risk Management

We lead Local Flood Authorities to deliver holistic solutions and secure external funding for mitigation schemes.

Our Services

We provide client-facing services to Lead Local Flood Authorities throughout the country. Our strategic management of flood risk programmes is driven by Local Flood Risk Management Strategies that we create and maintain for our clients. We coordinate risk management authorities to manage flood risk holistically, acknowledging that water doesn’t adhere to political boundaries. This ranges from catchment-based planning and investigations following flooding incidents to the development of drainage proposals for future developments and the championing of sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) and environmental improvements. 

We have a leading role in this industry, with well-established relationships across all stakeholders, including water companies and the Environment Agency. We have an impressive track record of accessing external funding to enhance local understanding of flood risk and the progression of mitigation schemes.
