Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Spatial Portrait of South Somerset Environmental Quality Environmental Quality

  • Comment ID: 1134
2. SPATIAL PORTRAIT OF SOUTH SOMERSET The Environmental Quality Section does not consider all of the relevant issues in South Somerset. We consider that aspects related to protection of water quality and surface water drainage / flood risk are not sufficiently developed within the section as it only considers air quality.

13. ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING We note Core Indicator E1. The Environment Agency would welcome inclusion of a more robust measure - refusal of permission for developments where an Environment Agency objection on water quality grounds cannot be overcome.

Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Settlement Strategy Infrastructure Delivery Policy SS6: Infrastructure Delivery

  • Comment ID: 1135
4. SETTLEMENT STRATEGY Policy SS6 Infrastructure Delivery There may be a requirement to secure funding for strategic flood risk / drainage solutions, as these may provide a more sustainable solution than delivering onsite measures for the strategic sites. This would be informed by the relevant surface water mapping / Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA) Level 2. Therefore, this subject should be included in the policy under the strategic infrastructure section.

11. health and well being Recreational facilities may be considered acceptable in flood risk areas, but the suitability and appropriate use should be considered e.g. recreational area which becomes flooded or water logged for long period may not be suitable for some sports. Similarly areas set aside for SuDS may be appropriate for informal recreation, depending on the design.

5. YEOVIL - VISION AND PROPOSALS The preferred area of growth is the East Coker / Keyford / Barwick .These areas are subject to flooding from the West Coker Stream for East Coker and the Barwick Stream and West Coker Stream for Barwick. Flood Zone 3 is very narrow in this area and it should be possible to develop in the area without infringing on the floodplain. However, the Flood zone outline for both the Barwick Stream and West Coker Stream is not accurate around East Coker. Further hydraulic
