Sustainable drainage systems and planning applications
Information to include in planning applications
Information about what should be included in a drainage strategy for major and minor planning applications is in the planning application - drainage strategy information document.
To ensure that the council, as the Local Planning Authority (LPA), can determine an application in a timely manner, and for the Lead Local Authority (LLFA) to be able to fulfil its role as a statutory consultee, sufficient drainage information must be submitted in support of an application.
Validation of application
In order to ensure the Lead Local Authority (LLFA) can make a timely response to the Local Planning Authority (LPA) and for the LPA to be able to determine the application, a local list will be used to validate any application.
This list requires a submission of a drainage strategy for all major applications and other information for some minor applications.
The detailed requirements for the drainage strategy will vary depending upon the type of application.
