Policy 10a (page 66)

The assessment and mitigation of flood risk promoted by this policy would ensure that development in the Lowdlam and Southwell areas will manage surface water runoff. We have no reason to believe that this approach is not Sound in principle.

Surface water discharge to the River Trent in these areas may require the consent of the Trust. As the Trust is not a land drainage authority, such discharges are not granted as of right.

It is important to note that the effectiveness of the policy will depend upon the wording and content of the Local Drainage Designations Supplementary Planning Document referred to. The policy refers to the need to work with partners to develop Local Drainage Designations. We therefore would request that the Trust are identified as a partner at the appropriate stage if discharge to the River Trent is proposed, so that we can be adequately consulted upon this document.
