Representation Summary:

We feel that the Sustainable Communities criteria put forward under 'Natural environment and conservation' are suitable. We note one criterion for the protection, maintenance and enhancement of the foreshore. We would recommend that, when considering schemes against this criterion, you consult our Estuary Edges: Ecological Design Guidance available on our website at: http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/business/sectors/100745.aspx. The guidance focuses on the ecological benefits of recreating or maintaining natural/semi-natural waterside margins and provides some useful case study examples.

Representation Summary:

In terms of flood risk, the Thames Estuary 2100 Plan suggests a policy P4 for your Borough. This means that more action needs to be taken in order to sustain the current level of flood risk into the future, including responding to the potential increases in flood risk posed by urban development, land use change and climate change. This additional action might be in the form of new or improved flood defences along the Southend seafront (where feasible) or through better floodplain management measures. In either case, Planning Obligations represent an important potential funding stream that we are pleased to see included in this document

Please note that further information on flood risk management into the future in Southend and Leigh-on-Sea can be found in the TE2100 Plan Consultation Document (April, 2009), pages 199-210. The Essex Shoreline Management Plan might also provide some relevant information for other parts of the Borough.

We feel that a bit more emphasis could be placed on water efficiency in this section as it is included in the Sustainable Communities Criteria in the following section. The Essex Thames Gateway Water Cycle Study Scoping Report also mentions the importance of water efficiency in ensuring adequate potable water supplies to the region into the future. We are keen to support high levels of water efficiency in both new and existing development and Planning Obligations might represent a viable mechanism to pursue opportunities to improve water efficiency in the Borough.

Appendix 1, page 37 - This section should include reference to the Essex Thames Gateway Water Cycle Study Scoping Report 2009. Further iterations of this document should also refer to the detailed Water Cycle Study report currently being undertaken for your Local Authority by Scott Wilson and also the updated Strategic Flood Risk Assessment.
