National Planning Policy Framework and flooding

14 Feb

Let us not forget that, before the National Planning Policy Framework came in, we had Planning Policy Guidance 25 – a 192 page document that set out very clearly all the dangers of building where water could gain the upper hand.  This has now been ditched in favour of waffle and rhubarb about “sustainability” and “economic growth”.  It’s what you get when you “simplify” the rules.

It isn’t ALL the Environment Agency’s fault – Mr Boles and Mr Pickles and Mr Cameron.
