Flood Risk Management

In today's regulatory landscape, flood risk assessment is a critical component of any planning application. We provide comprehensive Flood Risk Assessments (FRAs) aligned with the National Planning Policy Framework and Local Planning Authorities' Core Strategies.

Our approach addresses various sources of flooding, including river and coastal inundation, as well as surface water flooding from overland flows. We consider factors such as location, design, land use, and the anticipated impacts of climate change.

At Pittilla Bell Consulting, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive Drainage Management and Engineering services that mitigate flood risks, promote sustainability, and ensure the resilience of built environments.



We provide specialised knowledge during the planning phase for:

  • Outline and comprehensive Flood Risk Assessments for planning purposes

  • Strategies for surface and foul water drainage, incorporating Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS)

  • Adherence to CIRIA SUDS Manual guidelines

  • Sequential and Exception tests for flood risk assessment

  • Calculation of surface water runoff before and after development for different storm scenarios

  • Assessment of surface water flooding and exceedance events

  • Modeling of overland flow

  • Development of Flood Management and Evacuation Plans
