Flood Risk Assessment

Over 5 million people in England and Wales live and work in properties that are at risk of flooding from rivers or the sea.

Encon Associates offer Flood Risk Assessment (FRA) services for all types and scales of development throughout the UK often as a result of a request for information about flood risk by the Local Planning Authority as part of applications for planning consent.


Encon Associates provide site-specific FRA's which includes full liaison with the Environmental Agency (EA) to ensure any objections are mitigated to ensure your development can proceed.

Services include:

  • Site Specific FRA Reports for planning applications
  • Site Specific FRA for compliance of Code for Sustainable Homes
  • Hydraulic Modelling of rivers and water courses 
  • Liaison with EA for mitigation design
