We have substantial experience in obtaining the Environment Agency permits for regulated flood risk activities within 8m of main rivers, in the floodplain or near flood defence structures.

We guide clients and contractors through the most suitable application to be able to get the project underway.

Our experience allows the contractors to gain a greater understanding of the timescales required and the risks that these permits may have to the delivery of the project. Construction works can fall within different permits such as excluded activities, registration for an ‘exemption’, standard rules permit or a complete bespoke permit.
