Sustainable Drainage Guidance
Sustainable Drainage Systems
From 6th April 2015 all planning applications (including outline submissions) for major developments will be required to show that sustainable drainage systems for the management of run-off are put in place, unless demonstrated to be inappropriate.
Under these national arrangements, from the 15th April 2015 the Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA) i.e. Surrey County Council will be a statutory consultee on these applications.
