FLOOD RISK STUDY MAY 2020
With the aim of making the Plan as robust as possible in terms of how it ensures that new developments will not increase flood risk on the sites themselves or the areas surronding them, we commissioned Create Consulting to undertake a review of our draft policies.
They also prepared a high-level overview of existing flood problems in the Page's Lane / Chequers Lane area, but our limited budget did not stretch to the sort of detailed study of those that might have defined a detailed plan of work to solve those.
We were pleased that the study concluded our draft policies were robust, and have incorporated its recommendations on how to improve those policies.
We were also pleased with the Lead Local Flood Authorities response when it saw the report - "It is really welcome and encouraging to see the attention to surface water flooding and flood risk within the document and through the conversations we have had. If only all Neighbourhood Plans we see were like this"
