Flood Risk Assessment, Leeds, West Yorkshire
Sep 18, 2013

RAB Consultants prepared a Flood Risk Assessment in support of a proposed change of use of a commercial building into a place of worship in Leeds.

The site is located within the Environment Agency’s flood zone 3a and is at risk of flooding from Meanwood Beck.

RAB gathered and used modelled flood levels, flood depths and historical flood data from the Environment Agency and the Local Authority, and conducted a topographic survey to determine flood depths at the site.

RAB produced a Flood Warning and Evacuation Plan for the client and recommended a safe access/egress route to vacate the site in the event of an emergency. The client was recommended to sign up to receive the Environment Agency’s Flood Warning Service.
