Is the site currently known to be at risk Please attach surface water and fluvial flood risk maps as. of flooding from any sources If so shown on the Environment Agency s website and any. please state and provide evidence records of known historic flooding at the site. The Greenfield runoff rate from the development which is to be used for assessing the requirements for limiting discharge flow rates and attenuation storage from a site should be calculated for the. area that forms the drainage network for the site whatever size of site and type of drainage technique Please refer to the Rainfall Runoff Management document or CIRIA SuDS Manual for details. 2 Impermeable area,DIFFERENCE, EXISTING PROPOSED NOTES FOR APPLICANTS LOCAL AUTHORITIES. PROPOSED EXISTING,Impermeable area Ha, If proposed existing then runoff rates and volumes will be. Surfaces which do not permit infiltration of water. increasing,into the ground, Drainage Method See the London Plan Policy 5 13 Drainage Hierarchy If the. Rainwater harvesting infiltration SuDS existing drainage was via infiltration and the proposed is. watercourse sewer not section 3 should provide evidence as to why. 3 Is infiltration on site suitable Storage is required for the additional volume from site but also for holding back water to slow down the rate of discharge from the site This is. known as attenuation storage and long term storage The idea is that the additional volume is not permitted to flow rapidly overland into watercourses or into the sewer system. and hence potentially increase flood risk on site and or downstream of the site You can either infiltrate the stored water back into the ground or if this is not possible hold it back. with on site storage allowing gradual discharge at a controlled rate Please fill in the table to show the extent of your investigations as to whether infiltration is a possible route for. runoff to be discharged to,NOTES FOR APPLICANTS LOCAL AUTHORITIES.

Is the site contaminated If yes A ground investigation will need to consider potential contamination to. consider advice from others on groundwater Water should not be infiltrated through land that is contaminated. whether infiltration is a safe The Environment Agency may provide bespoke advice in planning consultations for. solution contaminated sites that should be considered. In light of the above information is infiltration If infiltration is not feasible the applicant should consider the options in section 4 If. feasible infiltration is feasible then it can be combined with the methods in section 4. 4 Method proposed for discharge of surface water in line with the London Plan Policy 5 13 Please select multiple options where necessary Where an. option is not deemed possible sufficient justification must be submitted with supporting evidence where necessary. YES NO EVIDENCE THAT THIS IS OR IS NOT POSSIBLE NOTES FOR APPLICANTS LOCAL AUTHORITIES. Rainwater harvesting is where rainwater is stored on site. for reuse For example water for gardening domestic use. Rainwater harvesting, etc Harvesting features could include but are not limited. to rainwater harvesting tanks and water butts, Allowing space for rainwater to soak into the ground as. Infiltration per natural methods If proposed these must satisfy the. requirements shown in section 3 of this DAF,Please see the CIRIA SuDS Manual C753 for further.

To watercourse agreement with the Environment Agency for main. rivers or the Lead Local Flood Authority for ordinary. watercourses i e all non main rivers will be required. The confirmation from sewer provider that sufficient. To surface water sewer, capacity exists for this connection will be required. This would only be acceptable where other options are. not reasonably practical and will not be accepted where.

IH124 method FEH method Other please, Please circle which method was used to calculate the Greenfield Runoff Estimation. London Plan policy 5 13 Developers should aim for a Greenfield runoff rate from their developments. London Plan Sustainable Design and Construction SPG section 3 4 10 All developments on Greenfield sites must maintain Greenfield runoff rates On previously developed sites. runoff rates should not be more than three times the calculated Greenfield rate. EXISTING RATES IF, GREENFIELD RATES L S PREVIOUSLY DEVELOPED PROPOSED RATES L S NOTES FOR APPLICANTS LOCAL AUTHORITIES. QBAR QBAR is approximately the 1 in 2 year storm event. Page 4 of 9, Proposed discharge rates with mitigation should be no greater than the. 1 in 1 year Greenfield rates for all corresponding storm events If restrictions to Greenfield. rates cannot be achieved then sufficient justification with supporting evidence. 1 in 30 year must be submitted Please note that discharging all flow regardless of the. corresponding storm event intensity from site at the existing 1 in 100 year event. rate would increase flood risk during smaller events and therefore would not be. 1 in 100 year permitted Applicants must also check and adhere to existing Local planning. policy where further runoff restrictions may apply. To mitigate for climate change the proposed 1 in 100 year CC runoff rate must. be no greater than the Greenfield 1 in 100 year event runoff rate The peak rainfall. 1 in 100 year plus, intensity allowance used must be in line with the latest Environment Agency s. climate change, climate change allowance guidance Currently this requires allowances of 20. and 40 to be added and the most appropriate one used and justified Typically. for heavily urban sites we would ask for 40 to be used. B Discharge volumes post development, The Non Statutory Technical Guidance for SuDS Where reasonably practicable for Greenfield development the runoff volume from the development to any highway drain. sewer or surface water body in the 1 in 100 year 6 hour rainfall event should never exceed the Greenfield runoff volume for the same event Where reasonably practicable for. developments which have been previously developed the runoff volume from the development to any highway drain sewer or surface water body in the 1 in 100 year 6 hour. rainfall event must be constrained to a value as close as is reasonably practicable to the Greenfield runoff volume for the same event but should never exceed the runoff volume. from the development site prior to redevelopment for that event. IF THE PROPOSED STORAGE VOLUME ON SITE POST DEVELOPMENT IS LESS THAN THE STORAGE VOLUME. STORAGE VOLUME REQUIRED TO, PROPOSED STORAGE VOLUME ON REQUIRED TO ACHIEVE THE GREENFIELD RUNOFF RATE PLEASE PROVIDE A JUSTIFICATION AS TO WHY.

RUNOFF RESTRICTIONS MAY APPLY,1 in 100 year,6 hour event. Page 5 of 9, C Storage methods Attenuation storage is provided to enable the rate of runoff from the site into the receiving watercourse or sewer to be limited to an. acceptable rate to protect against erosion and flooding downstream The volume needing storage is a function of the amount of development relative to the. Greenfield discharge rate, TYPE OF SUDS FEATURE VOLUME M3 NOTES FOR APPLICANTS LOCAL AUTHORITIES. SuDS can be adapted for most situations even where infiltration isn t feasible e g. 5 impermeable liners beneath some SuDS devices allows treatment but not infiltration. See the CIRIA SuDS Manual C753, If no storage features have been proposed please explain why this is the case and. 7 provide evidence to support this reasoning in the box below. This value should be equal to or greater than the Proposed storage volume value in. section 5B,Page 6 of 9, IF NO STORAGE FEATURES HAVE BEEN PROPOSED IN THE SECTION ABOVE PLEASE EXPLAIN WHY THIS IS THE CASE AND PROVIDE EVIDENCE TO BACK UP THIS REASONING IN THIS BOX. EVIDENCE MUST BE SUFFICIENTLY DETAILED TO DEMONSTRATE THAT A SUDS BASED SYSTEM IS IMPRACTICAL FOR THIS SITE. 6 Please confirm,NOTES FOR APPLICANTS LOCAL AUTHORITIES.

How runoff flows from storm events in methods for managing excess flows should be demonstrated so as to. excess of 1 in 100 years will be managed on minimise the risks to people and property e g through evidence of. site exceedance routes These exceedance proposals should be for runoff. in storm events greater than 1 in 100 year plus climate change.
