Notes to Applicant

 

In order to carry out the off-site works required you will be undertaking work in the public highway which is land subject to the provisions of the Highways Act 1980 (as amended) and therefore land over which you have no control.  In order to undertake the works you will need to enter into an agreement under Section 278 of the Act. Please contact hdcsouth@nottscc.gov.uk  for details.

 

The Environment Agency advises that condition 9 should not be altered without its prior notification to ensure that the above requirements can be incorporated into an acceptable drainage scheme that reduces the risk of flooding.

 

The Environment Agency does not consider oversized pipes or box culverts as sustainable drainage.  Should infiltration not be feasible at the site, alternative above ground sustainable drainage should be used.

 

The Environment Agency advises that surface water run-off should be controlled as near to its source as possible through a sustainable drainage approach to surface water management.  Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) are an approach to managing surface water run-off which seeks to mimic natural drainage systems and retain water on-site, as opposed to traditional drainage approaches which involve piping water off-site as quickly as possible.

 

The Environment Agency advises that there should be no siting of the package sewage treatment plant within 50 metres or upslope of any well, spring or borehole used for private water supply.  It should be noted that the private treatment plants may require a separate permit from the Environment Agency.  This would be additional to planning permission.

 

The proposed development lies within a coal mining area which may contain unrecorded coal mining related hazards.  If any coal mining feature is encountered during development, this should be reported immediately to The Coal Authority on 0845 762   6848.  Further information is also available on The Coal Authority website at www.coal.decc.gov.uk.  Property specific summary information on past, current and future coal mining activity can be obtained from The Coal Authority's Property Search Service on 0845 762 6848 or at www.groundstability.com.

 

The Borough Council has worked positively and proactively with the applicant, in accordance with paragraphs 186 and 187 of the National Planning Policy Framework, based on seeking solutions to problems arising in relation to dealing with the planning application. This has been achieved by providing details of issues raised in consultation responses; requesting clarification, additional information or drawings in response to issues raised; and providing updates on the application's progress.
