At regulation 18 consultation stage, SCC highlighted that a number of site allocation policies need to contain the following wording, requiring a Flood Risk Assessment (FRA). The recommended amendment would make these policies effective in addressing flood risks and therefore sound.
A flood risk assessment should be carried out to identify suitable mitigation and a deliverable strategy for the disposal of surface water. Where possible development should avoid proportions of the site with predicted or historic flooding.
