                                        have not been re-visited. Council needs to check

                                        susceptibility maps in relation to SHLAA sites.

                                        proximity to the watercourse need to ensure that none
                                        of the operations result in any adverse change in

                                        The EA has a strict policy as to what is acceptable in

                                        to investigate and remediate historic contamination
                                        that may pose a risk to controlled waters.
                                        The onus is on the applicant to demonstrate that any
                                        methods of surface water disposal will not present a
                                        risk to controlled waters in principal aquifers and
                                        drainage areas.
                                        The majority of the borough should be considered as

                                        sewer. Would object to any proposals which require
                                        discharges of foul sewage effluent to ground in SPZ1.

                                        Consents for works are being reviewed following
                                        investigations under the Groundwater regulations and

                                          discharge consent variations would be required. The

                                         requirement to restrict runoff to Greenfield as the site
                                         is upstream of a Critical Drainage Area (CDA) which
                                         could limit the available space and level of

                                        Opportunities for flood storage schemes should be
                                        considered in light of the Catchment Flood
                                        Management Plan which states that the natural
                                        floodplain should be safeguarded.
                                        Dry access and egress may be problematic where
                                        sites are partially or wholly surrounded by flood zones.
                                        Assume a need for transport infrastructure provision
                                        which should be given careful consideration.
                                        Expect significant investigation into biodiversity as the
                                        biodiversity value is high and contributes to the high
                                        risk assessment level. The environmental capacity of
                                        this site should be established. Further reporting may
                                        conclude that significant provision of green
                                        infrastructure and open space will be required to
                                        ensure that there is no detriment to the BAP habitat
                                        and species which would result in a reduced area
                                        available for development. Further study required to
                                        support development in this area. Environmentally in
                                        respect of ecology, flood risk and drainage, these
                                        sites are the most constrained in the whole of the
                                        SHLAA. We therefore have to score these as high
                                        risk. High risk should be read in the context that either
