I’m a Senior Flood Risk Consultant at Aegaea with over five years experience in the flood risk management sector. I am a Member of CIWEM. During my career I have been lucky to work on a wide variety of projects supporting them through the production of Flood Risk Assessments, Drainage Strategies and Hydraulic Modelling. The projects I have managed range in size from private residential developments, through to larger housing developments, as well as Solar Energy and national infrastructure schemes.
An example of my project experience includes acting as project manager and flood risk consultant to support a reserved matters planning application for 120 houses in Sussex. The site was divided by several ordinary watercourses, none of which had been modelled by the Environment Agency or Lead Local Flood Authority. The Local Planning Authority requested a pre-development baseline model, followed by a post-development scenario to assess the change in flood risk on and offsite as a result of the development. I oversaw the production of the hydraulic modelling and produced the Flood Risk Assessment. Following my recommendations on how to negate displacement of floodwater, it was demonstrated that by re-landscaping parts of the site, the scheme could be achieved without increasing flood risk elsewhere, whilst also making the site developable for the 120 dwellings, locating these outside the modelled flood extents.
I’m currently based in Sussex. Outside of work you’ll usually find me walking my two dogs, who have been known to eat a sofa or two in their time (but have now grown out of it I hope!).
