ePetition details

Reduce Flooding and examine flood risk in detail, before allocating more development sites.

We the undersigned petition the council to prior to the allocation of further development sites, to commission, ideally with our JCS partners but alone if necessary, a detailed pluvial and fluvial flood risk assessment across the whole JCS area. This assessment must cover the cumulative impact from all development completed, planned, or projected since 2014; climate change, other influencing factors, and major infrastructure projects; and include a full review of mitigation requirements that may be required during the construction phase. Furthermore, we ask the Council to fully consult with all relevant agencies and parish councils, reviewing and incorporating their local evidence and include this within the Council’s development plans

In considering flooding and flood risk, our current development plans fall short; particularly given all the evidence currently available about the cumulative impact of pluvial (surface rain) and fluvial (river) flooding across the whole JCS area. The result of this is to severely impact residents and, in some areas, has virtually destroyed faith in the Borough Council’s plan.

This ePetition runs from 12/02/2021 to 01/07/2021.
