C&A provide Flood Risk and Sustainable Drainage Support for winery to help secure planning approval

11th April 2023
Chapel Down

English sparkling wine maker Chapel Down received planning approval from the local council to relocate Chapel Down production facilities from Tenterden to farmland at Canterbury Business Park.

Charles & Associates prepared a Flood Risk Assessment incorporating Sustainable Urban Drainage which was submitted with the application. The application site lies within Flood Zone 1 and therefore is at low risk of flooding. It confirms that the proposed drainage scheme includes the capture and discharge of surface water into the underlying geology, via a sustainable combination of cellular soakaways, permeable paving systems and a single ecological infiltration basin. Kent County Council Flood and Water Management raised no objection.
