Objection on Surface Water drainage Application No. 2014/60/90688/E Land at Slipper Lane

By pmadmin

The Planning Application does not meet these requirements. Surface water basin 1-2 119m above sea level at invert, at Sunny Bank Drive, and Old Engine Close, and Portal Drive 115m above sea level at EFGL at this point 4m below the proposed basins invert 182m away from roads indicated above This could become a flood problem when the culvert blocks or the drains hydraulics fail.
I accept flooding in the dip on Sunny Bank Road has always been a problem, and could flood, but by the additional burden created to the already over loaded drainage system by this proposed development, and by proposing more  LPS into the drainage system, this will not mitigate the problem.
In the area’s indicated, there are several existing homes which the FFL are lower than the road – these will be prone to flooding.
Sunny Bank Drive some homes suffer from ground water flooding – this development will increase this problem, more ground water will migrate towards Sunny Bank Drive. By this definition this is not a sustainable development

101. The aim of the Sequential Test is to steer new development to areas with the lowest probability of flooding. Development should not be allocated or
permitted if there are reasonably available sites appropriate for the proposed development in areas with a lower probability of flooding. The Strategic
Flood Risk Assessment will provide the basis for applying this test. A sequential approach should be used in areas known to be at risk from any
form of flooding
102. If, following application of the Sequential Test, it is not possible, consistent with wider sustainability objectives, for the development to be located in zones with a lower probability of flooding, the Exception Test can be applied if appropriate. For the Exception Test to be passed:
●● it must be demonstrated that the development provides wider sustainability benefits to the community that outweigh flood risk, informed by a Strategic Flood Risk Assessment where one has been prepared; and
●● a site-specific flood risk assessment must demonstrate that the development will be safe for its lifetime taking account of the vulnerability of its users, without increasing flood risk  sew here, and, where possible, will reduce flood risk overall. Both elements of the test will have to be passed for development to be allocated or permitted.
