Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS)
With effect from 6 April 2015 all major planning applications (developments of 10 or more dwellings or equivalent non-residential or mixed development) are expected to have sustainable drainage systems for the management of surface water run-off, unless demonstrated to be inappropriate. Further information is available here.
Our local validation requirements have been revised to include information required for SuDS.
Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)
The CIL tariff came into effect on 1 April 2015. It is to be charged on the 'gross internal floor space' of the proposed development. However, some developments are exempted, including minor development of less than 100 sq m of net internal floorspace unless it will comprise of one or more dwellings, new affordable housing and development for charitable purposes. Further information is available here.
