Strategic Distribution Option A

Representation ID: 5331

Received: 16/03/2016

Respondent: Environment Agency

Representation Summary:

Foul sewerage generated by development will need to be accommodated, if via the existing on-site sewerage treatment plant then provision for the extra flow may be required. An application will need to be made under the Environmental Permitting Regulations to increase the flow discharging to the watercourse.

Strategic Distribution Option B

Representation ID: 5332

Received: 16/03/2016

Respondent: Environment Agency

Representation Summary:

According to Environment Agency maps land in the south-eastern corner (Option B site) lies within Flood Zone 3. The extent of Flood Zone is limited to the channel of the watercourse at that location, where development is unlikely. Notwithstanding this the LPA should be satisfied that the site is sequentially preferable from a flooding perspective.
No in-principle objection to the development (of Option A), subject to appropriate mitigation measures. However, preferred option for any detailed proposal would be for the watercourse to be retained to convey only existing fluvial flows and that a separate surface water drainage SuDs system is provided to manage surface water run-off from the site. Guidance is provided to ensure no increase in flood risk, or deterioration of the existing waterbody as a result of development and to improve and protect water quality, habitat and amenity.
Development that encroaches on the Padge Hall Brook has a potentially severe impact on ecological value. Opportunities to incorporate biodiversity in and around developments should be encouraged.

Strategic Distribution Option C

Representation ID: 5333

Received: 16/03/2016

Respondent: Environment Agency

Representation Summary:

According to Environment Agency maps there is an area of land through the site (Option C) which lies within Flood Zones 2 and 3. The LPA should be satisfied that the site is sequentially preferable from a flooding perspective.
To meet the NPPF no development or ground raising on any area that is designated as Flood Zone 2or 3 should be permitted. Appropriate mitigation measures are required to; protect the underlying Secondary A aquifer, and protect the water environment. Additional foul sewage capacity and / or a new private sewage treatment facility required.
