Property Level Flood Protection survey, in Felton, near Morpeth, Nothumberland
Mar 4, 2013

RAB Consultants was commissioned to undertake a Property Level Flood Protection (PLFP) survey at a property in Felton, Morpeth.

We gathered and used the Environment Agency’s modelled flood levels and undertook a topographic survey of the site to determine likely flood depths at the property for events up to an including the 1 in 100 year & climate change event.

We identified routes of water ingress at the property in line with DEFRA’s Household-Level Flood Protection Surveys template which included:

* Householder observations;

* External features;

* Internal features;

* Non-structural issues.

We produced a PLFP report which included a detailed assessment of flood depths, flow routes and flood mechanisms. We produced a schematic indicating routes of ingress for the 1 in 100 year & climate change event. We considered the physical characteristics of the property and the capability of the householder in choosing the most appropriate flood resistance products to protect the property.
