Sustainable Drainage Consultation

Date: 6/3/2012

EXTRACT:

This response relates to the Consultation on Schedule 3 of the Flood and Water Management Act 2010 will make Unitary and County Councils SuDS Approval Bodies.

Having considered and discussed the proposals as set out in the Consultation document the POS have significant concerns about the proposals especially in relation to their implementation in two-tier areas. It is clear that there will be a need for significant new administrative processes to enable the regime to be properly implemented. This would be less onerous in Unitary Council's and London Boroughs, where those processes will be developed in house, with proper regard to the statutory planning process, however for two tier structures this will be a significant task.
