Representations on Preferred Options Local Plan - East Colchester/Hythe Special Policy Area

Representation ID: 3016

COMMENT Environment Agency (Mr Martin Barrell)


Appreciate the inclusion of paragraph but refer to the importance of the flood risk Sequential and Exception Tests. Currently the most frequent flood risk in this area is from surcharging of the surface water sewers. It would be useful to identify this within the supporting text as this is where investment in infrastructure is a vital requirement to support the aspirations for regeneration.
There are significant constraints in this area due to flooding from various sources. Engagement of ECC as the LLFA /CBC and AW should be carried out in order to strategically inform this development area

COMMENT Environment Agency (Mr Martin Barrell)


Concerned that the use of tidal flows to generate power may increase fluvial flood risk in the town - such schemes require the maintenance of a high upstream head of water. Flood Modelling will be required to develop this beyond a very outline concept due to large flood risk management infrastructure implications.
A flood risk activity permit would most likely be required from EA.
Maintaining fish and eel passage would need to be addressed.
The bridging of the river would also require a permit and further discussing is needed with the EA re all of the above issues.

COMMENT Environment Agency (Mr Martin Barrell)


Paragraphs 6.49 & 6.50: We welcome recognition and reference to the existing surface water and ordinary watercourse flooding and infrastructure issues. We would recommend that these are addressed through infrastructure improvements between Colchester BC, Essex County Council and Anglian Water. You should consider developer contributions or CIL levied to support infrastructure schemes that will resolve the existing problem and provide capacity in the drainage network for incoming developments and regeneration.

COMMENT mrs jane black


para 6.51 mentions a bridge to the south of Colne Causeway Bridge. A road bridge would not seem feasible. Would the suggested power generation through tidal flow prevent navigation?
