POLICY QL25 - Protecting Water Supply

  1. Development will only be permitted where:
    1. there is adequate capacity within the existing mains supply to serve the development and the existing water resources will not be compromised;
    2. in instances without an adequate supply the proposals make provision for an appropriate new or reinforced mains supply from the nearest point of adequacy; or
    3. in instances without an adequate supply and a non mains supply is proposed i.e. a borehole, it can be demonstrated that this will not have a detrimental effect upon other non mains supplies to existing users and nature conservation and provide an adequate supply for the use proposed.
  2. In cases where a new or reinforced mains supply is to be provided conditions may be applied to the grant of planning permission or agreement to ensure that the work to provide the additional water resources is undertaken prior to the development being occupied or brought into use.
