1. Limiting the surface water run-off generated for all rainfall events up to and including the 1 in 100 year event (plus climate change allowance) so that it will not exceed the run-off from the undeveloped site and not increase the risk of flooding off-site, subject to a minimum discharge of 5l/s.


5. No development shall commence until full details of a scheme for a surface water sustainable drainage system to serve the site, and method of implementation including arrangements to secure funding and maintenance for the lifetime of the development through an appropriate legally binding agreement have been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority in consultation with Lead Local Flood Authority.

a)  Information about the lifetime of the development and design of the sustainable drainage system design, including storm periods and intensity (1 in 30 & 1 in 100 year + 40% allowance for climate change), discharge rates and volumes (both pre and post development), methods employed to delay and control surface water discharged from the site, and appropriate measures taken to prevent flooding and pollution of the receiving  surface waters, including watercourses;

b)  Demonstrate that the surface water run-off would not exceed the pre-development greenfield runoff rate for an existing greenfield site.
