Overall we are pleased to note that matters of interest to us have been addressed and as such we consider the sound. We do however, have a few comments to make and suggested amendments for clarification purposes. Policy ENV8 - Water Quality, Supply and Treatment We support this policy. However, where a connection to mains sewer is not feasible, a development must comply with the Environmental Permitting Regulations for foul effluent discharges to surface water or ground. Developments must also

Southern Water treats wastewater arising from existing and new development at local Wastewater Treatment Works (WTW) in accordance with environmental permits. These permits stipulate the maximum flow that the company is permitted to release and the treatment standards that must be met. The parameters of the permits ensure that environmental targets are met, such as compliance with the Water Framework Directive. It is not necessary for developers to consider the impact on the WTW as this has

The policy is unsound because it conflicts with national policy. The Council requires that major proposals for new development – presumably schemes of ten or more dwellings – must demonstrate that there will be adequate water supply and wastewater treatment facilities in place to support the development etc. The second paragraph requires that all development proposals must provide a connection to the sewerage system…as advised by Southern Water. There are a number of difficulties with these f

Egerton Parish Council wishes to make the following comments - PolicyENV8, referring to water supply and the need for all development to be provided with a connection to a sewerage system of adequate capacity is supported. However, account should be taken in this policy of isolated rural development where this may not be possible for individual units, in which case alternative arrangements to an appropriate standard (such as the provision of a sceptic tank) should be deemed acceptable.

Many rural areas are not served by sewerage networks. Windfall housing development or conversions from agricultural buildings would be more isolated anyway and would have to install septic tanks or similar approved systems instead .

CPRE remains concerned about the environmental costs of increased water stress, due to climate change and increasing extraction. The quality and quantity of surface water bodies is also a concern, particularly during period of drought. This also needs to be considered when determining the capacity of water supply and waste water treatment facilities. These resources should be mentioned in the policy, as well as groundwater resources.
