Sectors Flood

Thomson Habitats and Thomson Ecology are experienced in providing leading ecological consultancy services and habitat management services on flood defence schemes, and water industry schemes which are on the WEM framework as well as regional minor works frameworks.

With the effects of climate change becoming more prevalent, our flood defences need to be more resilient, robust and flexible than ever before, helping to ensure that communities, businesses and stakeholders are protected from the devastating impacts of floods.

With our extensive experience of working on the WEM programme, and helping to deliver works on some of the UK’s largest and most complex flood defence schemes, we are able to provide multiple services to the flood sector, ranging from the implementation of biodiversity offsetting, through to vegetation clearance, tree clearance, protected species translocation, and the delivery of large-scale ecological mitigation schemes.

In practice

Due to predicted changes in the West Somerset coastline caused by the rising of the sea level, wetland has been created to support local wildlife as well as helping manage the flood risk to the local community.
