Histon & Impington Neighbourhood Plan - Submission consultation

Representation ID: 168119

Received: 18/07/2019

Respondent: Cambridgeshire County Council

Representation Summary:

Cambridgeshire Lead Local Flood Authority is surprised at lack of detail on flood risk and drainage in Plan.

Plan should shrive to promote SuDS - an approach to manage surface water run-off which seeks to mimic natural drainage systems and retain water on or near the site. Significant advantages over conventional piped drainage systems in reducing flood risk.

Variety of SuDS techniques available means that virtually any development should be able to include a scheme based around these principles.
