Flood Risk Activity Permit Applications

engineer by river
  • Apply for a Flood Risk Activity permit 
  • Required for all flood risk activities 
  • Expert guidance through the process 
  • Have everything in place to be able to follow the rules 
  • Liaison service with the Environment Agency 
  • Ensure that your application is completed efficiently 

This permit, which is issued by the Environment Agency, is required if you want to do work: 

  • On or near a main river
  • On or near a flood defence structure
  • In a flood plain 
  • On or near a sea defence 

There are several steps to applying for a Flood Risk Activities standard permit, all of which our environmental consultants can guide you through. They include: 

  • Ensuring your business can follow the rules stated
  • Filling in the application form and providing any supporting material
  • Checking your activity against the generic risk assessment
  • Checking if you can’t apply for a standard permit because your works are too close to a flood defence structure of an environmentally sensitive location
  • Prepare an Environmental Management System that describes how you’ll manage any risk
