- Client: Salthouse Harbour Hotel
- Architect: Barefoot and Gilles
- Market Sector: Hotels
- Services: Civil Engineering, Structural Engineering
MLM undertook a Flood Risk Assessment, in accordance with PPS25: Development and Flood Risk, for a major extension to the Salthouse Harbour Hotel. Located right on the waterfront in Ipswich, this site is in an interesting location from a Flood Risk viewpoint.
The Environment Agency initially raised objections to the scheme on grounds of flood risk. However, MLM managed to demonstrate the acceptability of the scheme in Flood Risk terms through negotiations with the Local Planning Authority and Environment Agency and the provision of a carefully considered Flood Risk Assessment showing how the scheme would result in reduced Flood Risk, compared with the pre-development situation.
- Demonstrated a reduced flood risk compared to existing use.
