Respondent: Environment Agency

Representation Summary:

Paragraph 116 - With regards to surface water management, we wish to remind you that, whether or not the receiving water body is a main river, the Environment Agency is no longer the statutory consultee in the planning process. All surface water management scheme proposals and their associated discharge rates must therefore be approved by Southend Borough Council in its role as Lead Local Flood Authority.
