Utilising its powers as Coast Protection Authority, to carry out necessary coast protection work to protect any land in its area against erosion and encroachment by the sea under the Coast Protection Act As the local Planning Authority for its area, Milton Keynes Council will take account of flooding risks in all matters relating to development control including development plans and individual planning applications, in accordance with Planning Policy Guidance Notes PPG20 and PPG It passes to the east of Bransby and is joined by a tributary on its eastern bank, before passing to the west of Broxholme. Accommodating sustainability within the design and maintenance process for lowland rivers and watercourses has to address three essential elements: year round conveyance of flows, storage of flood peaks, retention and protection of flora and fauna dependent on or resident in the water corridor.

      As well as a comprehensive review of the existing network and assessment of requirements to meet future initiatives, software tools for and guidance on network management were developed.

Whilst many thousands of people outside of these boundaries also derive reduced flood risk from IDB water level management activities. On any other watercourse, you may need a Land Drainage Act consent from one of the following:. The area created above the berm also provides additional flood storage capacity whilst the low level channel can be maintained in such a manner that design conveyance conditions are achieved and flood risk controlled.

Berms are created at or near to the normal retained water level in the system. An aqueduct carries the Foss Dyke over a drainage channel called the Main Drain, and the A57 road crosses again as the river enters Brayford Poola widening of the River Witham in the centre of Lincoln.
