Representation Summary:

This assessment was done in Nov 2020. Honeydon and St Neots flooded in December 2020. There are 5 watercourses which run from Staploe Parish into the rivers just upstream of St Neots. A development of 10,800 homes at Dennybrook (site 977) would increase the chance of flooding in St Neots and Honeydon. NPPF 2020 167. The assessment should incorporate cross border effects on St Neots. The methodology for preparing a strategic flood risk assessment was updated in Sept 2020 increasing the stringency of risk assessments. Therefore this flood risk assessment needs to be updated.

This assessment was done in Nov 2020. There was significant flooding in Honeydon and St Neots in December 2020. There are 5 watercourses which run from Staploe Parish into the rivers just upstream of St Neots. We don’t believe that a development of up to 10,800 homes at Dennybrook (site 977) is appropriate and we believe it would increase the chance of flooding.
NPPF 2020 states at 167. When determining any planning applications, local planning authorities should ensure that flood risk is not increased elsewhere.
We believe that Dennybrook (site 977) would increase the risk of flooding elsewhere and that this flood risk assessment should be updated to allow for this. It should also incorporate cross border effects ie. the assessment shows watercourses going from Staploe parish into St Neots but no indication is given that these would affect the flood risk in St Neots.
The methodology for preparing a strategic flood risk assessment was updated in Sept 2020 and the risk assessments became more stringent therefore this flood risk assessment is out of date and needs to be updated. There is no mention of flooding in Staploe and Honeydon. The brooks in both of these villages flood. No properties have been directly affected in recent years but the roads in both villages flood significantly about once per year and in December 2020 they were very close to flooding homes.

The hamlet of Honeydon is prone to flooding as seen particularly in December 2020. St Neots – where the brook runs to is also prone to flooding. Building 10800 houses would only increase this problem.

A development of 10,800 homes at Dennybrook (site 977) would increase the chance of flooding in St Neots and Honeydon. NPPF 2020 167. Whilst Dennybrook may incorporate SUDS, what of the effect on exisitng homes? The assessment should also incorporate cross border effects on St Neots.

This assessment was done in Nov 2020. For the first time in nearly 18 years severe flooding near my home in St Neots occurred in December 2020. This occurred due to water being released from Bedford and backing up our brook. I believe that excessive building around the River Great Ouse has alraedy contributed to this. Run off from Dennybrook would further increase the chance of St Neots flooding. The methodology for preparing a strategic flood risk assessment was updated in Sept 2020 increasing the stringency of risk assessments. Therefore this flood risk assessment needs to be updated.

On this basis is this report valid? Any planning decisions based on this report would be unsound.

This assessment was done in Nov 2020. Honeydon and St Neots flooded in December 2020. There are 5 watercourses which run from Staploe Parish into the rivers just upstream of St Neots. A development of 10,800 homes at Dennybrook (site 977) would increase the chance of flooding in St Neots and Honeydon. NPPF 2020 167. The assessment should incorporate cross border effects on St Neots. The methodology for preparing a strategic flood risk assessment was updated in Sept 2020 increasing the stringency of risk assessments. Therefore this flood risk assessment needs to be updated.

Representation Summary:

This assessment was done in Nov 2020. There was significant flooding in Honeydon and St Neots in December 2020. There are 5 watercourses which run from Staploe Parish into the rivers just upstream of St Neots. We don’t believe that a development of up to 10,800 homes at Dennybrook (site 977) is appropriate and we believe it would increase the chance of flooding.
NPPF 2020 states at 167. When determining any planning applications, local planning authorities should ensure that flood risk is not increased elsewhere.
We believe that Dennybrook (site 977) would increase the risk of flooding elsewhere and that this flood risk assessment should be updated to allow for this. It should also incorporate cross border effects ie. the assessment shows watercourses going from Staploe parish into St Neots but no indication is given that these would affect the flood risk in St Neots.
The methodology for preparing a strategic flood risk assessment was updated in Sept 2020 and the risk assessments became more stringent therefore this flood risk assessment is out of date and needs to be updated. There is no mention of flooding in Staploe and Honeydon. The brooks in both of these villages flood. No properties have been directly affected in recent years but the roads in both villages flood significantly about once per year and in December 2020 they were very close to flooding homes.
