We agree that it would be useful to have more guidance in the new Local Plan on how the Council will approach the matter of flood risk and residential development, and consider this in light of the benefits of delivering the urban living agenda. This would significantly assist the Council in prioritising development locations and fast tracking development proposals with limited impacts on flood risk.
