After attending the meeting held on 17 January 2020 regarding concerns regarding Spelthorne's housing plans. It left me even more concerned!! I live in Wheatsheaf Lane, and this road and surrounding roads have flooded twice in 11 years, with many families and elderly people leaving their homes for over a year at the time. This stress this takes on humans is immense, but yet even though FLOOD LAND/RIVER WORK to help this situation havn't been started yet, let alone finished, plans to build have

After attending the meeting held on 17 January 2020 regarding concerns regarding Spelthorne's housing plans. I was very concerned with the outcome of meeting. The government and county councils should be held to account for forcing building on green belt land. GREEN BELT IS GREEN BELT for a reason, and that should be the end of it. What concerned me more by the end of the meeting, is that the Right Honourable Kwasi Kwarteng kept avoiding the word flood, saying it wold be covered later IT WAS NO

Paragraph 2 of Policy E2 (Flooding) sets out that new development will be guided to areas of lowest flood risk from all sources of flooding through the application of the sequential test. It is considered that this paragraph should be re-worded given the sequential test is not required in all instances. As currently written, there is potential for confusion. The requirement to minimise flood risk where individual sites contain different flood zones is also unclear and should be clarified. In ad

The policy highlights that the Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA 1 and 2) will inform the location of future of development, which includes applying the sequential test in proposing allocations for the provision of new homes. The Draft SFRA (February 2018) sets out the methodology for applying the sequential test for the local plan but it does not provide any details that this has been carried out. Whilst the site selection assessment provides commentary of flood risk for each site, it does

Policy E2 Flooding To improve consistency in how surface water flood risk is reviewed across the county we would recommend that the following policy wording is considered in terms of surface water flood risk under part 3 of Policy E2: Flooding: 3. All development proposals are required to demonstrate that land drainage will be adequate and that they will not result in an increase in surface water run-off. Sustainable drainage systems are required on all developments, unless proved to be not rea

There are three key factors we analyse when reviewing the proposed sites and number of homes. Firstly, if any of the sites are within a groundwater Source Protection Zone (SPZ); secondly, the location of any existing water network or other interests in the proposed area; and finally, is the current infrastructure sufficient. Source Protection Zone (SPZ) The proposed development sites are not located within what the Environment Agency has defined as groundwater Source Protection Zone (SPZ). This

Policy E2 relates to flooding but focuses on fluvial flooding. The policy should ensure that development does not increase the risk of flooding from all sources of flooding. Sewer flooding can arise where there is insufficient capacity within the existing sewerage network. To avoid sewer flooding, where development is proposed in areas where there is insufficient capacity the development should not be occupied until any necessary upgrades to the network have been delivered. Planning conditions s

We would welcome cross LPA cooperation and a consistent approach regarding the River Thames Scheme and the associated impacts on the wider area.

Notwithstanding our advice in relation to the new Thames modelling and the need for the SFRA to be updated to inform this policy and the associated allocations, we support the principal of ensuring the flood risk sequential and exception test is applied in accordance with national policy. Where sites contain different flood zones, we wish to see your commitment to ensuring the sequential approach is applied, again as advised by national policy, to ensure the layout of the site avoids development

The implementation of this policy will not enhance the indicators health, flooding, economy and climate change. The policy simply seeks to maintain the status quo and will not making a positive contribution.
