Flood and Water Management Act 2010

Combined applications

223.Paragraph 10 provides the procedure where an applicant chooses to have their application for approval combined with planning permission. In a case like this, the applicant must give the planning application and the application for approval required by this Schedule to the planning authority. The application for approval of the drainage will need to contain the same information, be in the same form, and be accompanied by a fee in the same way as if a free standing application were made.

224.The planning authority will be obliged to consult with the Approving Body (if it is a different body than the planning authority), so that the Approving Body can determine the drainage application. The planning authority must inform the Approving Body of its final decision on the planning application. The planning authority must also inform the applicant of the final decision of the Approving Body on the drainage system at the same time as it informs the applicant of its final decision on planning permission.
