Little Crow Solar Park

Received 25 February 2021
From Ancholme Internal Drainage Board

Representation

Ancholme IDB is a public body with powers under the land Drainage Act 1991 to exercise a general supervision over all matters relating to the drainage of land within its district and exercise such other powers as are conferred by that Act. Please note the following standing advice for any proposed developments within the drainage district: • If the surface water is to be discharged to any ordinary watercourse within the Drainage District, Consent from the IDB would be required in addition to Planning Permission and would be restricted to 1.4 litres per second per hectare or greenfield runoff. • No obstructions within 9 metres of the edge of an ordinary watercourse are permitted without Consent from the Ancholme IDB. However, the proposals appear to be sited approximately 1 mile to the west of the Ancholme IDB’s drainage district. Even so, there can be no increase in flow rate or volume into the Ancholme IDB’s drainage districts.
