Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - I4 Flooding

Representation ID: 2196

OBJECT The Environment Agency (Michelle Kidd)


The site specific policies require modelling to be undertaken to refine the flood zones on
the allocated sites, however the flood policy does not specify this. The flood map for
planning is indicative and doesn't have a full coverage of the smaller, ordinary
watercourses. A clear responsibility for reviewing and approving the resulting models
will need to be clear.

Representation ID: 2191

OBJECT The Environment Agency (Michelle Kidd)


We are pleased to see that the requirement for the FRA to consider climate change in
all aspects of the proposals including the assessment of the access and egress routes
and compensation. We recommend that there is a clear understanding of how to apply
the climate change allowances, within the LPA. Aylesbury Vale is formed of a number of
river basin districts, each within differing allowances.

OBJECT The Environment Agency (Michelle Kidd)


There is no mention of raising internal floor levels above the predicted design flood level to reduce the likelihood of the property flooding taking into account any increase in flood level likely in future as a result of climate change. This could have been included in order to make this policy more robust. This would be a requirement we would expect to see to be addressed for a proposed development. Various changes to the criteria of I4 are suggested.

OBJECT Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service (Mr Staurt Gowanlock)


We are supportive of this policy - particularly the inclusion of requirements for evacuation management planning in consultation with the emergency services as set out at point l. However, we also recommend that we be notified of any locations where housing in areas at risk of flooding has been allocated for occupancy by vulnerable groups, such as elderly or disabled people, so that they can be identified for early evacuation or high priority rescue.

OBJECT Anglian Water Services Limited (Planning Liaison Manager


concerns relating to the wording of point of Policy I4. Reference is made to surface water discharge rates complying with Buckinghamshire County Councils guidance on runoff rates and volumes. Where the final discharge point is to a public sewer we would ask that this is agreed with the relevant sewerage undertaker to ensure this is consistent with our assessment of capacity. This to ensure the effectiveness of the existing public sewerage network and address the risk of downstream flooding.

OBJECT Thames Water (Sir/ Madam )


Thames Water Support Policy I4 on Flooding and Sustainable Urban Drainage systems and all the supporting text from paragraphs 11.20 - 11.31. However we consider it
could go further and that the Plan should recognise the risk from sewer flooding in addition to fluvial flooding as recognised in the Flood & Water Management Act.
