Planning Applications - flood risk/surface water/drainage issues
If you have submitted a planning application which raises issues relating to flood risk, surface water drainage or any other drainage issue, please be aware that due to the emergency flooding situation in Runnymede, these types of applications are likely to take longer to deal with than normal.
The reason for this is that the Council’s Drainage Engineers have been taken away from their normal duties to assist with the flooding emergency which means that they will be unable to respond to consultation responses on planning applications as quickly as they would like. It may also be likely that consultation responses from the Environment Agency will also be delayed. All planning applications which raise these issues will be determined as soon as is practicably possible. If you have any queries please email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the case officer for your application.
