Stop Development on Flood Risk Land
We the undersigned call upon the government to amend the existing National Planning Policy Framework and Planning Practice Guidance to take greater account of the need to reduce the risk of flooding to households.
- Planning legislation and guidance should be amended so that the housing requirements of local authorities that have suffered from significant and repeated flooding are reduced;
- Leaving the housing requirements unchanged will simply move the problem around, rather than tackle it, and
- Such changes are required as a matter of urgency.
We also call upon the Member of Parliament for the Calder Valley to support such changes and use his influence to achieve these aims.
Please note we will include your name and, address when submitting the petition to Craig Whittaker MP to pass onto the Government.
