Site Larger than 1 Hectare - Approximately 80 New Units

Project name

Eastry Hospital

Location

Eastry, nr Sandwich, Kent

Client

Small/Medium size Development Company

Description of development

80 residential units, plus some commercial units and community use facilities

Considerations

Although located in Flood Zone 1, the site is greater than 1 hectare in size and consequently an FRA was required to demonstrate that the risk of flooding from all sources is low, particularly with regards to surface water runoff.

Resolution

The main focus of the FRA was therefore to develop a robust surface water management plan that reduced the risk of offsite flooding.

Outcome

Full planning permission granted
