Floodline is a progressive and sustainable property development company. We provide unique solutions to water space and floodplain development problems, working with nature to bring forward developments that enhance the living environment and create desirable places to live.
Since our inception the central core of Floodline’s business model has been the unique ability to create value in and around water space and undervalued floodplain land. We provide the consultancy and developer skills to manage all stages of a development project.
Over the last few years, the UK Environment Agency, along with the relevant agencies in Netherlands and Germany, have started to adopt a flood risk approach moving from defending to managing flood risk.
The flood problem is being compounded by rising sea levels, increase in rainfall intensity, coupled with the demand for several hundred thousand new homes in the UK. A new sustainable approach and some innovative thinking are required when dealing with the development of floodplain land and water space. The traditional solution of land filling is time consuming and very costly and will often result in increased flood risk to adjacent areas by removing functioning floodplain.
Floodline is able to provide unique solutions through our expertise in working with both private individuals, large corporate and statutory bodies in formulating successful development strategies.
We are able to work as both consultant to landowners producing Flood Risk Assessment reports and flood modelling coupled with development methodologies, financial appraisals and as principal developer on schemes from individual homes to large, mixed-use, developments.

Our developments are not only able to create value to the property we are also able to incorporate off site benefits to the wider community in reduced flood risk as well as environmental improvements.
