We would strongly support the adoption of stronger policy to support in decision making regarding flood risk. In particular, we would urge the Council to encourage the use of multi-functional green infrastructure to support with reducing flood risk while also providing recreation opportunities, supporting biodiversity and making use of natural processes to help clean water. While we understand that it can be challenging to retrofit SuDS where a site is already developed, there is an opportunity to design-in high quality SuDS at the onset of larger development schemes which can provide the abovementioned multiple benefits.

 

Summary
Strongly support the adoption of stronger policy to support in decision making regarding flood risk.
