We note that Derbyshire County Council are not referenced. As of April 2015, the surface water elements of this
policy will be the responsibility of the LLFA.

We therefore recommend that the final plan is reflective of the LLFAs new statutory role for surface water.

There is no mention of the EA's responsibilities for main rivers. We suggest at the end of paragraph 9.34 the following is added: The Environment Agency has flood risk
management responsibilities over sections of main river such as
the River Rother, River Drone, River Doe Lea, River Amber, Alfreton Brook,
River Erewash and River Meden.

We fully support and welcome this policy which has plenty of content regard to the delivery of flood risk management.

The policy is informed by an appropriate evidence base, is clearly worded and makes reference to key areas of national guidance contained in the NPPF, with flood risk avoidance being key to the policy aspirations.

Policy LP30 details very clear and strong expectations that development will not be permitted unless certain flood risk and drainage criteria are met. DCC Flood Risk Management Team (FRMT) supports the implementation of this Policy when considering planning applications. The criteria set are in accord with national guidance on SuDS and development drainage.

Due to the number of sites in the SPHS, the FRMT has not provided a high level inspection of its flood risk datasets for each specific site. However DCC holds relevant flood information.
