Fighting against the tide

July 2013

Environment Agency
Flooding is becoming an ever more serious issue for the UK. Assisting the ongoing measures to tackle the problem, Fisher German is working with both the Environment Agency to help with advice on flood defence schemes and liaise with owners of land affected by these anti-flooding measures. 
 
The firm is involved with several major schemes, including the Nottingham Left Bank scheme along the River Trent, the Lower Tame flood scheme around Tamworth, the Lower Dove scheme, and measures to combat flooding in residential areas of Ashbourne. 
 
John Ikin, partner, explains that the firm begins with referencing – ascertaining who owns and occupies land on which projects are planned – before working as part of an Environment Agency project team and with landowners affected by such schemes to mitigate the temporary effects of the work associated with construction.
 
Any permanent alterations in land or property value can also potentially be compensated, he adds, and his team are involved in the negotiation process. 
 
Success with a recent tender has seen the firm’s work with the Environment Agency expand to encompass the whole of the Midlands and East Anglia regions. “It’s an exciting challenge and is likely to include input from the majority of our offices across the region,” says John, revealing that the firm’s responsibilities have also grown. 
 
“In addition to our input on Flood Defence schemes we anticipate being involved with the management of land on flood plains owned by the Environment Agency and providing sales advice for surplus property. The framework also includes the provision of building surveying services.”
