Flood Risk Management - RAB Consultants
Jun 30, 2014

RAB Consultants specialise in flood risk and resilience. Our work with Lead Local Flood Authorities and the Environment Agency means we have the experience and knowledge to help LLFAs deliver their new role.

We have assisted several LLFAs, including Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire, and our services include:

  • Drafting and updating local flood risk assessments;

  • Supporting the setting up of flood risk teams and common works programmes with partner Risk Management Authorities;

  • Developing Local Flood Risk Management Strategies and Plans to meet the 2015 deadline;

  • Identifying significant structures for “designation” and establishing a flood asset register;

  • Advising on sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) and the establishment of a SuDS Approval Body;

  • Carrying out Section 19 flood investigations and the performance of response agencies during floods;

  • Developing and delivering training and exercising in readiness to respond to surface water and drainage flood incidents.

RAB Consultants is the only visual asset inspection accreditor for the Environment Agency (EA) and we are expanding our asset inspection services to deliver T98 accreditation and mentoring to Lead Local Flood Authorities.
