Flood Alleviation

As the government continues to cut funding for coastal and fluvial flood defence and climate change continues to take effect, so property owners and occupiers need to give consideration as to how to protect against flooding and its practical and financial implications.

Our specialist team is experienced at working with, for and against the Environment Agency, the County Councils and other statutory authorities and non-government organisations such as the RSPB, Essex Wildlife Trust and Crossrail to help property owners and occupiers obtain consent for private flood defence schemes or partnership schemes or help prepare and submit representations for publicly funded projects.
