South Wymondham


Ardent (ACE) was instructed to assist in the preparation of a planning application and Environmental Impact Assessment for the proposed development at South Wymondham.

The development proposals included 750 new homes, a community centre and a new primary school. ACE prepared the Flood Risk Assessment, detailed drainage strategy and infrastructure in consultation with the local authority, EA, Anglian Water, South Norfolk District Council and the Internal Drainage Board.

The site presented a number of challenging environmental constraints and the work produced by ACE demonstrated how a sustainable drainage system could be successfully integrated into a sensitive location.

Further constraints, with regard to the foul water sewerage network required an innovative solution to dealing with the foul sewage generated by the development within tight ecological constraints.
