PBA was commissioned by Scotch Corner Richmond LLP to undertake a Flood Risk Assessment at land west of A6108 Barracks Bank, Scotch Corner to support a full planning application for the development of a new Designer Outlet Centre.
In addition to the flood risk assessment, PBA also helped deliver a surface water drainage strategy for the site and to agree a strategy for the diversion of a Yorkshire water main crossing the site.
PBA worked in conjunction with the project Architect Corstorphine + Wright to develop a SUDS based surface water drainage strategy that could be delivered within the site. The proposed strategy utilises a series of attenuation ponds, swales, underground storage tanks and oversize tank sewers to store storm water runoff from the site.
By planning ahead, PBA were able to quickly address an objection raised by Yorkshire Water to the development due to the potential impact that the development would have on an existing watermain crossing the site. PBA added great value to this project also by securing an agreement in principle for the diversion of the watermain that allowed the objection to be removed.
