Development that would have an adverse impact on the water environment due to:

  1. Additional surface water run off leading to a significant risk of flooding on site or an increase in flood risk elsewhere, and/or
  2. A reduction in the quality of surface water run-off,

will only be permitted where it can be demonstrated that appropriate alleviating measures can be implemented.

Sustainable drainage systems (SUDS) will be encouraged wherever they would be effective and practicable, so as to ensure that development does not increase run off, and potentially damage important landscape features and protected species and habitats. Where SUDS are not provided then any conventional drainage system utilised must improve the status quo.
