  • Apply for a Flood Risk Activity permit 
  • Required for all flood risk activities 
  • Expert guidance through the process

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
