SUPPORT The Environment Agency (Michelle Kidd)


The policies within the D-BUC051 include appropriate provisions to ensure the
development is designed to be safe without increasing risk to others. We welcome the
requirement of consideration of a flood alleviation scheme onsite. With watercourses
running through the site, there is a potential for Natural Flood Risk Management

consume valuable land on a development.

OBJECT Persimmon Homes Ltd., and CALA homes Ltd represented by Turley Associates (Mr Christopher Roberts)


The developable areas of the
site are therefore uncertain. Furthermore, proposed Policy D-BUC051 indicates that the
allocation should also provide for a flood alleviation scheme to reduce the risk to both
the site and the wider area. Taking account of such factors (and contrary to the
proposed policy and the Housing Land Supply Soundness Document), it is doubtful that
