The Water Management and Flooding SPD, adopted in July 2018, sets out in detail the SWC approach to minimising flood risk, managing surface water and achieving sustainable drainage systems. This applies to both new and existing development whilst ensuring that the reduction, re-use and recycling of water is given priority and water supply and quality is not compromised. It relates to policies SWDP28, SWDP29 and SWDP30 of the adopted SWDP, relating to flood risk, Sustainable Drainage Systems and water supply.
