I'm bumping this discussion back to the top from as far back as April this year, which seems an extremely long time ago - it was in the era B.P. (Before Pickles).
Anyway, I have just been asked by colleagues in our Environment directorate to clear a space next Spring, as this guidance...
...requires that Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment come through scrutiny before June next year. It also suggests that the LGIU and IDeA (now of course known as something less memorable) will be producing a "scrutiny of flooding toolkit".
Is this news to anyone else, or have I not really been paying attention? i was very disappointed to find this guidance imposing itself on scrutiny's very full schedule, and thought this was precisely the kind of prescription we were getting rid of (although admittedly the guidance is dated May 10)
Anyone able to offer clarity, relief, guidance, counselling etc?
