Flood Risk - The current policy of permitting development in Tidal (not Fluvial) Flood Zones should be widened so that it is not just urban sites which benefit from tidal flood defences that can be developed, but also villages and other rural areas eg SDLs which similarly are protected by the same sea defences which protect Weston-Super-Mare and Clevedon can also be developed.

Nailsea Moor's rhynes, rivers and sluices are part of Clevedon's flood defences. Don't destroy this delicate system.

Whilst the intended policy may increase available land, the risk of flooding becomes related to the risk that the defences may be breached. That risk is not easily quantified, particularly when climate change uncertainties are considered. The consequences of the defences being breached should be considered and taken into account in granting planning permission.Flood assessments need to be undertaken on a cumulative basis. SUDs may not be appropriate in all circumstances.
