The Board has had some previous consultation regarding this site and is aware of a proposal allowance for flood storage and surface water run off management Strategy. Consideration for development would need to be fully demonstrated within a comprehensive Flood Risk Assessment.  

NSLIDB – Site to comply with (Please refer to the Draft IDB standing advice and the IDB consultation response to the Remitted Policies within the NSC Core Strategy which we have submitted under general comments in this consultation)

This site proposal is to drain to private ditches which outfall to the Environment Agency’s Congresbury Yeo. Any development will need to account for bringing an agricultural basic private land drainage system up to a standard compatible with positive drainage of a residential site and provide a suitable funding stream to maintain such a system.
