Surface water management

In line with Government legislation all proposed new dwellings need to submit with a planning application a Surface Water Management plan.

To assist applicants in submitting their Surface Water Management Plan the Council provides guidance and minimum requirements.  You will need to download the guidance which gives information about the completing of the required calculations for the proposed development.

If you have any queries about completing this guidance please visit the Environment Agency website in the first instance.

Flood risk assessments

If your proposal requires you to submit a Flood Risk Assessment (FRA), in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) then you will need to find a professional qualified person to carry out and submit this required information.
