Local residents issue a warning to the Council and developers over proposals to change the nature of Moor Lane.
‘Moor Lane’ Rain & Foul Water Drainage
The high-level flood risk assessment submitted with the Outline Planning Proposal in 2006 states that
- The development will increase the amount of surface water from the site
- It is proposed that surface water will be collected in balancing ponds and discharged to existing ditches on the east of the site!
- Foul water for the site will be pushed through existing sewers. No review of the existing sewers capacity was carried out at the time.
A map of the existing sewers is shown below:
Foul Water will either drain via gravity to the existing sewers or will be pumped to the south most likely to into node 5101 (see map below for a zoom into the relevant node).
