2.            SUPPLEMENTARY PLANNING GUIDANCE: SUSTAINABLE URBAN DRAINAGE SYSTEMS (SUDS)

            With reference to paragraph 5 of the Minute of 4 November 2019, there had been circulated copies of a report by the Executive Director, Corporate Improvement and Economy which sought approval of the Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) on Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS).  Once approved, the Guidance would become a material consideration in the determination of planning applications. The aim of the Supplementary Planning Guidance was to support the effective implementation of Local Development Plan Policies PMD1–Sustainability, IS8 - Flooding and IS9 – Waste Water Treatment Standards and Sustainable Urban Drainage.  It also aimed to give more awareness to interested parties of the various SUDS requirements to be incorporated within planning applications.  The draft SPG was approved for public consultation with delegated approval to the Chief Planning Officer if no substantive comments were received.  Although it was considered there were no major issues raised during the consultation, the SPG had been referred back to the Committee due to the substantive number of textual changes requested by SEPA and Scottish Water.  Most of these textual changes referred to their updated work practices and documents.  The responses received were contained in Appendix B to the report.  In response to a question regarding the use of SUDS systems as part of new school builds which could then be used as an educational resource, Mr Johnston undertook to see how this could be developed.

 

            DECISION

                   AGREED to approve the Supplementary Planning Guidance on Sustainable Urban Drainage contained in Appendix A to the report.
