- New development will link in to the existing sewer system that runs through the site at several locations. Severn Trent Water has confirmed that there is capacity for this.
- Surface water drainage will be controlled. An attenuation and Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) will be included to restrict and delay flows.
- The development will not exacerbate flood risk for residents downstream, although there will be a full flood risk assessment as part of the application.
