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 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.
