Stephen Whale represented the developer, a registered charity, at an appeal concerning proposed housing development in the functional floodplain close to the River Thames.  The case gave rise to issues as to the appropriate classification of the site in terms of the Flood Zone, the sequential test and the exception test.  There were also issues as to the design of the proposed dwellings, and their impact on the character and appearance of the area.
