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.

Sensible Energy Saving Tip

Here's some ideas for greener gifts to help you avoid consumer overdrive and busy shops in the run up to Christmas. How about vouchers for a special experience (massage, facial, theatre, cinema etc) or make your own to offer your time for baby-sitting, gardening, decorating etc. There's plenty of gifts that do good in some way, such as organic or fair trade goods, charity shop finds or recycled goods (recycledproducts.org.uk).
