Hart District Council is trying to make a smoother application process for small scale developments (sites less than 1 ha in Flood Zone 1) located in areas that flood from surface water. As such we are trialling our surface water flooding proforma with the idea that this form will quickly and easily guide developers through acceptable flood risk mitigation options prior to submission. The hope is that this will reduce both processing times and avoid the need for multiple updates to an application’s submitted plans.
We want to make sure that this for is as easy to use and helpful as possible to developers. If you would be willing to take a few minutes to give us your feedback we would be very grateful.
