Desktop Site Appraisals

When conducting an initial desktop site appraisal for a newly proposed development, often there is little information to inform engineering decisions. This can make initial assessments challenging. However, did you know, there is a plethora of information available online which can be extremely useful in identifying potential risks and informing early-stage design. 

Local planning portal websites; Historical mapping; EA Flood Mapping; Sewer Asset Searches and TPO searches are all generally available. Furthermore, the BGS Geology Viewer is a fantastic resource for understanding initial site geology and prior to phase 1 site investigation. 

Do get in contact if you have any development sites in mind and want to discuss initial site appraisals.
