EAS provided drainage advice in support of a proposed residential development located at 305 Ware Road. The proposals included the construction of 14 residential units with associated amenity areas. Initially a Flood Risk Assessment was provided including an outline drainage strategy in support of the application. Once the site gained planning permission, a detailed drainage strategy was provided in order to discharge planning conditions set by Broxbourne Borough Council.
The surface water drainage strategy included individual soakaways in the rear gardens of 8 of the dwellings with lined permeable paving used in part of the access road and driveways to provide additional attenuation. The lined permeable paving is to discharge to an existing Thames Water sewer located to the south of the site via an existing connection, with the private soakaways to infiltrate to ground naturally. A Pre-Planning Enquiry was made to Thames Water for the surface water outfall on behalf of the developer in order to confirm the existing Thames Water surface water sewer had sufficient capacity to accommodate the additional flow. An additional SuDS Statement was prepared to accompany the application to discharge the planning conditions.
EAS worked with the developer during the construction phase which is now nearing completion.
