Flood planning and development

Cambridgeshire County Council is a Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA) and as such is a statutory consultee to the planning process for surface water on all major developments. The consultation requirement and description of major development is detailed within the Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure Order). This applies to all new major planning applications.

New National Planning Practice Guidance (Planning Portal) , Non Statutory Technical Standards for Sustainable Drainage Systems (GOV.UK website) and National Planning Policy Framework (GOV.UK website) will aid our responses to consultations.
