GeoSmart Data

Flood Risk Assessment (FRA) with Environment Agency Data

What does it solve?

The FloodSmart Plus Report is designed to assess risks to a property or business from all sources of flooding.

Our consultants assess available data to determine the level of risk based on professional judgement and years of experience.

FloodSmart Plus includes all the features of a FloodSmart Report with the addition of preliminary consultation with the local Environment Agency office and the inclusion of available EA flood risk data.

This report is recommended for most sites in Flood Zone 2. Such sites tend to be more complex and their development is heavily influenced by Local Authority consultations with the Environment Agency.

The report provides clear and pragmatic advice regarding the nature and potential significance of flood hazards which may be present.

They are the most cost effective way to meet local authority planning conditions.

If your site requires more detailed assessment, our FloodSmart Pro report builds on technical detail working up to more complex Flood Risk Assessments detailing alternative options and designs.
