Ecology, Flood Risk & Rainwater Attenuation

An important part of the planning application process is the Ecology of the site, flood risk and Attenuation of water flow and storage.

The ecological value of your site is affected by previous uses and the presence of existing features such as trees, hedges, watercourses, wetlands, meadows, etc. Wherever homes are constructed, there is always a risk that however environmentally friendly the building or development itself is, it may still present a threat to local ecology, areas of natural beauty and municiple systems.

The principle here is to minimise the damage ot existing local ecology and then, where possible, to enhance it. For more information on this service contact Abba directly or fill out our enquiry form.
"I have worked with Abba on various projects over the last couple of years, they have always worked efficiently and the assessments provided have been accepted by the relevant local planning authorities. The assessments have assisted in me securing planning permission, which as a planning consultant, is what I require." - Town Planning Bureau

Sensible Energy Saving Tip

Use a watering can when watering your garden. Hosepipes and sprinkles can be wasteful.* On average, a watering can will use just 14% of the water a hosepipe would to do the same job. *If you use a garden sprinkler of have a swimming pool, please contact Thames Water on 0845 9200 888 to have a water meter fitted.
