THIS CONSULTATION HAS NOW CLOSED AND COMMENTS ARE BEING CONSIDERED.  MORE DETAILS TO FOLLOW

Public Participation - We are now consulting for an 8 week period from 22 April 2022 to 17 June 2022

The Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012, (Pre Regulation 12)

The water management policies within the Climate Emergency Review of the Local Plan (submitted to the Secretary of State for Examination, more detail on this can be viewed here) have been amended to improve how they address flood risk, drainage, biodiversity and amenity. Our priorities are as follows:

  • Reduce flood risk
  • Ensure run-off from developments replicates nature
  • Create multi-functional spaces to enhance the natural environment
  • Improve opportunities for maintenance and reduce maintenance costs

Policies DM33 to DM36 set out the local water management requirements. These policies accord with the national policy aims in the NPPF to mitigate and adapt to climate change, ensuring development takes place in the areas at lowest flood risk, opportunities are taken to reduce flood risk and sustainable drainage systems providing multi-functional benefits are included in development.
