Surface water strategy is now “draining onto the beach”

A revised ecology statement reveals that F&HDC has changed its strategy on the thorny issue of surface water drainage from the proposed development at Princes Parade. Instead of ultimately draining into the Royal Military Canal, it is now proposed to run off onto the beach!

Lloydbore Ecological Method Statement5.6 The hybrid planning application examined two potential drainage strategies, one draining into the canal and one draining onto the beach. Both of these strategies were subject to EIA screening and considered acceptable in environmental terms. The planning application as approved included a drainage strategy into the canal. Subsequent to the planning application being approved this strategy has now been re-visited and a strategy for draining onto the beach is now proposed.
