FLOOD RISK & DRAINAGE STRATEGY
A flood risk and surface water drainage assessment has been prepared dated October 2014 by Bidwells. This assessment incorporates a proposed development of 150 residential dwellings and an employment use and Starter B1 development with net area of circa 16,300sqm with associated external hard standings and parking areas.
The report demonstrates that the development site is located in flood zone 1 which is at low risk of flooding from all sources. The development will incorporate a sustainable surface water drainage strategy. The sellers will make land available off site for an attenuation pond.
A Utility Appraisal has been carried out as part of the original planning process by Bidwells. A copy of their report is available in the information pack. In summary;
i) Electricity: a new point of connection for the proposed development will be from the high voltage supply along Princes Road. It is envisaged that the 11KVA connection will be extended through the residential and B1 employment sites with multiple substations serving the development.
ii) Potable Water: existing supplies have been identified via a 6PVC main in Ethel Mann Road and a further 4 PVC main in Thomas Bardwell Drive. Essex and Suffolk Water have indicated that these mains will provide for the proposed developments of residential and commercial uses subject to reinforcement work.
iii) Foul Water Drainage: The development will be served by the Bungay Water Recycling Centre which currently has capacity to serve the development. The foul sewage network has sufficient capacity to convey either the gravity flow or a pump discharge and the preferred connection point onto the public sewer network would be via an existing manhole located off the north eastern corner of the site. No reinforcement works are envisaged.
iv) Gas: There is an existing 250mm PE Low Pressure main off the north eastern boundary adjacent to St Johns Road. This pipework has sufficient capacity to serve the proposed development without reinforcements subject to demand.
v) Telecommunications: British Telecommunications PLC have confirmed that they are able to service the site and would enter into an agreement to share cost of the infrastructure with the developer.
