Flood-tolerant structures

Walsingham Planning

If you own a site that’s at high risk of flooding you might think your chances of achieving planning permission for any type of development are low. However we can help you take a fresh approach.

Floating buildings are an innovative alternative to standard construction and could make it possible to overcome local restrictions on building on flood-prone land. For example we helped Premier Inn achieve planning permission for a floating hotel at a site in Hartlepool – the first development of its kind in the UK.

Floating buildings may be designed to float permanently, on the sea or a river, lake or reservoir. Alternatively they can sit on dry land but rise to float in the event of a flood. This can be an ideal option for building in riverside areas and flood plains. Some floating structures may not even need planning consent.

With our expertise, connections and forward-thinking approach we can help you maximise the potential of previously undevelopable sites.
