North Somerset Core Strategy Consultation on consequential changes to remitted policies CS6, CS14, CS19, CS28, CS30, CS31, CS32, CS33 Policy CS14 Distribution of new housing

  • Comment ID: 11734177//3
We note that with the exception of the increased numbers of housing and its distribution, the remainder of this Policy is unchanged. We remain concerned that drainage and flood risk matters associated with the scale of development proposed must be considered strategically rather than in a piecemeal way and at an early stage when considering the impact of the expected development. As described in the general section above, the cumulative impact on drainage of progressive developments must be cons

  • Comment ID: 11734177//5
There is no mention of drainage or flood risk matters within the bulleted list of desirable criteria. We would wish to ensure that all development proposals are accompanied by a suitable flood risk assessment which demonstrates that the impact of the development has at least a neutral impact on flood risk and drainage at a local and a catchment scale.

  • Comment ID: 11734177//6
We note that with the exception of the increased numbers of housing units the remainder of this Policy is unchanged. We strongly support the following key requirements; * Retain and enhance the existing rhynes, but we would comment that the development proposals must adequately provide for their necessary maintenance. * The delivery of the strategic flood solution plus on site mitigation measures, such as SUDs must be delivered as part of any development proposal in addition to long term mainte

  • Comment ID: 11734177//7
We note it is recognised that flood constraints limit the opportunity to develop adjacent to these areas. We would wish the wording of the Policy to be modified to highlight this issue as follows. * Residential development within the settlement boundaries of the three towns and adjacent areas will be acceptable in principal provided it reflects the character of the local environment and does not cause any adverse impacts.In particular Flood risk and drainage must be considered at a local and ca

  • Comment ID: 11734177//8
We note that there is no change to this policy however we would wish for the policy to be amended to require that Flood risk and drainage must be considered at a local and catchment scale by the planning authority, and any proposed development will need to be supported by a flood risk assessment which reflects this approach within its proposed surface water drainage strategy.

North Somerset Core Strategy Consultation on consequential changes to remitted policies CS6, CS14, CS19, CS28, CS30, CS31, CS32, CS33 Introduction

  • Comment ID: 11734177//1
Internal Drainage Boards (IDBs) are statutory local public bodies with responsibilities for flood protection, land drainage and the environment. The Board are also classified as a Flood Risk Management Authority under the Flood and Water Management Act 2010.   IDBs are established in areas of special drainage need and under the Land Drainage Act 1991 they are required to exercise a general supervision over all matters relating to the drainage of land. It is important therefore that the plannin
