Sustainable Drainage Systems: Written Statement - HCWS161

The Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Mr Eric Pickles, has released a written statement about how we can protect people and property from flood risk. He writes, “As part of the Government’s continuing commitment to protect people and property from flood risk, my Department and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs recently consulted on a proposal to make better use of the planning system to secure sustainable drainage systems.

Today we are publishing our response to the consultation explaining how we will be strengthening existing planning policy. This will make clear that the Government’s expectation is that sustainable drainage systems will be provided in new developments wherever this is appropriate.” Read the full statement here.
