Mott MacDonald appointed on Lincolnshire Lakes flood defence scheme, UK

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by North Lincolnshire Council to design a £13 million flood defence scheme near Scunthorpe, UK.

The £1.2 billion Lincolnshire Lakes scheme is a strategic regeneration project which will see six new villages created on a flood plain to the west of the town near Burringham and Gunness. It is expected that 6,000 homes, a primary school, stadium, community centre and retirement home, as well as new access roads and local shops serving the villages, will be built among a series of artificial lakes by 2028.

Mott MacDonald will undertake the detailed design of flood defences, with associated ground investigation studies, for 3.6km of the River Trent between the M180 and the southern boundary of Keadby Bridge. Other services the consultancy will provide include flood modelling and risk assessments, ecological surveys and screening, planning application and environmental statement advice, stakeholder engagement and the drafting of construction specification documents.

Colin Greensill, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said: “One of the key components of the scheme is creating a protected development that greatly reduces the possibility of flooding. North Lincolnshire Council’s investment will also enhance the resilience of the new villages against climatic extremes."

Mott MacDonald’s commission is due to be completed in the first quarter of 2016, with construction anticipated to begin shortly after.
