To seek approval of the Severn River Basin
District Flood Risk Management Plan ahead of publication in Autumn
In coming to this decision I have given due and full regard to the requirements of the public sector equality duty contained in section 149 of the Equality Act 2010 (“the Act”) by reference to the law itself.
Having fully considered all the available information, I have decided to reject the alternative options and take the recommended decision to:
Approve those elements of the final draft Severn River Basin District Flood Risk Management Plan (FRMP) for which Gloucestershire County Council is the responsible authority:
· the section of the FRMP entitled ‘The Cheltenham Flood Risk Area’ (appendix C), and
· Gloucestershire County Council measures/actions (appendix D).
Authorise the Assistant Director of Planning and Economic Development to approve any minor
amendments to GCC’s specific measures/actions prior to publication, providing the amendment is of no material significance to the spirit of the text.
For the reasons set out in the report.
Publication date: 30/06/2022
Date of decision: 30/06/2022
Effective from: 08/07/2022
