environmental permit for sea defence bund

Our client was considering the change of use of their site for the purposes of being able to utilise land for a range of uses; however, the site was adjacent to the sea and therefore susceptible to flooding.  After some discussion the opportunity was taken to progress an application through the Environment Agency for a bespoke permit to provide a new sea defence bund.

This not only provides the client with the opportunity of protecting the potential range of uses that could occur on the site, but there is arguably additional commercial value in the importation of spoil to build up the land levels whilst the local community will benefit from an improved walkway.

Everyone benefits from this scheme, which now gives the client further opportunity to consider how they may like to proceed on the site.
