The LSIDB &

property developers

Around 10% of the land within the LSIDB drainage boundary is developed land – both residential property and commercial units, for example in Bristol City.

Property developers planning any residential or commercial schemes require a land drainage consent issued by the LSIDB to be able to drain their sites.

By engaging with the LSIDB early, developers can commission expert flood risk assessments, drainage design consultations, and environmental impact assessments, allowing any application to be independently checked and refined for water management before formal submission to local authority planners for consideration.
