Wymondley Parish Neighbourhood Plan 2015 - 2031

Representation ID: 6484

Received: 20/07/2017

Respondent: Environment Agency

Representation:

Policy is too strongly worded as it suggests the Parish Council will oppose any development proposals that do not contribute towards reducing flood risk to the community. The National Planning Policy Framework only requires that new development does not increase existing flood risk and ideally reduces flood risk overall. This policy needs to be in accordance with any flood risk policies in the local plan. Flood risk betterment could be achieved through new developments through the use of SUDS or through S106 contributions towards flood risk management infrastructure.

Wymondley Parish Neighbourhood Plan 2015 - 2031

Representation ID: 6590

Received: 04/08/2017

Respondent: North Hertfordshire District Council

Representation:

Policies in the Submission version of the Local Plan set out the requirements for reducing flood risk when considering development proposals and for the inclusion of sustainable drainage solutions when granting planning permission. These policies do not add any further requirements to the measures already addressed in the Local Plan.
