Reduce flooding, examine flood risk in detail before allocating more development sites

We the undersigned petition the council to We the undersigned ask this council, prior to the allocation of any more development sites, to commission, with our JCS partners if possible or without if necessary, a detailed pluvial and fluvial flood risk assessment across the JCS area, to include cumulative impacts from our neighbours, climate change, other influencing factors and all development completed, planned or projected since 2014, including major infrastructure projects and reviewing mitigation requirements that may be required during the construction phase. Also to consult with relevant agencies and parish councils reviewing and incorporating their local evidence and include this within the councils development plans

With flooding and flood risk current development plans fall short, especially given all the evidence available now, in the area of pluvial and fluvial flooding's cumulative impact across the whole JCS area and the result of this is having a severe impact on residents and in some areas has virtually destroyed faith in the councils plan
