We are proud of the significant progress we have achieved over the past few years of being able to demonstrate the practical benefits of our 'Bluefield Development' techniques by demonstrating, not only the financial viability of projects, but also the ecological, environmental and financial benefits afforded to the wider community. Some of the major projects in our portfolio are listed below:

We are pleased to announce that we are progressing with a very exciting mixed-use development near a prominent South East Commuter Town.
The project will provide for a mixed use development to include new leisure facilities focusing on aquatic sports, potential Hotel and Restaurant,
approximately 300 traditional homes and 40 Can Float homes. We are currently preparing our planning application and the benefits to community include:
- • A sustainable development in parkland setting
• Increased flood attenuation to offer relief to a major conurbation
• Substantial leisure facilities to include major aquatics centre
Currently in private ownership the project will offer new parkland open space for the general public to enjoy a lakeside environment.
Floodline has formed a JV with a private landowner on circa 80 acre site near London, and we are currently at the pre-planning stage exploring the different development options. The site sits totally within a floodplain and has little value from a traditional development perspective; however there is great demand
for housing in the area and, using our unique expertise, we can bring forward a development that alleviates local flooding as well as bringing much needed
housing which includes affordable units.
Working with a large UK based regeneration company Floodline is working up plans to re-develop a large Brownfield site to the East of London. The site
has previously been rejected by the EA as suitable for residential development due to the inherent flood risk. However, we have entered into discussions
with the EA showing that a flood-resilient led development approach is a suitable and acceptable option. The site is at pre-planning stage and discussions
are ongoing with key stakeholders.
Planning approval was successfully secured for residential can-float properties beside a major river in South East England. The project was undertaken for a private client and the scheme was the first to be granted approval in the UK. Detailed discussions were undertaken with the planning authority, Environment Agency and other key stakeholders during the planning process.
The management team of Floodline previously established a can-float led development approach on a British Waterways owned site. The main
problem was the lack of a flood attenuation area resulting in the surrounding areas being badly affected by frequent flood events. Our development
methodology opened up the site for development whilst also increasing its flood storage capabilities.
