H Fraser Consulting Ltd has just completed another Basement Impact Assessment, this time for a site in Wandsworth.
The most stringent requirements for Basement Impact Assessments are set out by the London Borough of Camden, and until recently, householders and developers in other boroughs might not have needed to submit groundwater assessments with their planning applications.
More recently, many of the London Boroughs now require an impact assessment report at the planning application stage.
H Fraser Consulting has prepared reports for Camden, Westminster, Wandsworth, Kensington and Chelsea, and Merton.
A basement impact assessment is also useful in drawing up Party Wall Agreements, where neighbours with existing basements fear that the new development may cause groundwater ingress to their property.
