RIBA Stages 2-3
Flood Risk Assessment
The redevelopment of this former RAF Airfield includes 595 dwellings, a 193-unit retirement home, new school, and a neighbourhood centre which includes shops, health centre and gym.
Tullys has provided Civil Engineering services, covering RIBA Stages 2 and 3 works for the submission of a hybrid planning application. On a difficult site with very little in the way of existing infrastructure, we were able to gain approvals from the EA, the LLFA and Anglian Water for a flood risk and drainage strategy which incorporated numerous SuDS and soft landscaping features. These included interlinked detention basins, incorporated into the landscaping, as well as two statement swales running through the site.
