Flood Risk Assessment, Darlington, North East England
Dec 11, 2013

RAB Consultants prepared a Flood Risk Assessment in support of a proposed residential development in Darlington.

Part of the site is situated within the Environment Agency’s flood zones 2 and 3a and is at risk of flooding from West Beck.

RAB gathered modelled flood levels and historic flooding information from the Environment Agency, alongside a topographic survey to determine flood depths at the site.

RAB recommended finished floor levels for the properties within the development, and produced a Flood Warning and Evacuation Plan for the client. It was also recommended for future residents to sign up to receive the Environment Agency’s Flood Warning Service which is available for this area of Darlington.
