RE: ‐ Land off, Smithfield Road, North Kelsey, Market Rasen
Dear Felicity Webber
We are writing regarding the proposed works at the above site which may commence shortly.
We would like to remind the applicant and contractors of our drainage board byelaw: ‐ “No obstructions within 9
metres of the edge of a watercourse are permitted without Consent from the IDB
We have responded to the applicant on behalf of the Ancholme IDB earlier this year explaining that a consent application
will be required for any works within 9 metres of the drain, which I attach for your information.
It also explains in the applicants Flood Risk Report (extract below) that there is an awareness that an application may
need to be made and/or keeping a 9-metre distance from the drain.
Extract from Geology & Flood Risk Report
“5.5 The site compound fence has been set at a distance of 9m from the top of the drain
bank in accordance with the requirements of the Ancholme Internal Drainage Board
to provide access for maintenance of the drain.
5.6 Consultations have been held with Ancholme Internal Drainage Board in December
2011, who have stated their requirements, including the need for an application to
discharge into the drain.
5.7 Any discharge from the interceptor would be directed onto a concrete apron formed
in the ditch in a way that avoids any restriction to flow. No other construction works
are proposed adjacent to either leg of the drain. There will be no constructional
impacts associated with this section.
5.8 The proposed site will be located in the corner of the field, avoiding the banks of the
drain on the west and south sides, being separated from it by 9m as noted above
I attach a consent application form if there are any proposed scheduled works within 9 metres of the drain.
Please do not hesitate to contact our board Engineer Mr Paul Jones for further guidance or visit our website: ‐

Engineer to the Board/Officer Paul Jones (Shire Group of IDB’s)
On behalf of
Ancholme Internal Drainage Board
The above application lies within the IDB (extended) district and indicates that: -
The planning application may relate to work in, on, under or near a watercourse within the
Internal Drainage Board (IDB) Drainage District and requires CONSENT from the IDB in
addition to any landowner agreements for works, access, easements and PLANNING
The IDB as a Consultee give the following comments/recommendations:
If the surface water were to be disposed of via a soakaway system,
the IDB would
have no objection in principle but would advise that the ground conditions in this area may
not be suitable for soakaway drainage. It is therefore essential that percolation tests are
undertaken to establish if the ground conditions are suitable for soakaway drainage
throughout the year. If surface water is to be directed to a mains sewer system
the IDB would again have no
objection in principle, providing that the Water Authority are satisfied that the existing
system will accept this additional flow.
If the surface water is to be discharged to any ordinary watercourse
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 a watercourse are permitted without
Consent from the IDB.
If surface water or works are planned adjacent to a Main River
within the Drainage
District, then the Environment Agency should be contacted for any relevant Permits
SHOULD Consent be required from the IDB as described above then we would advise that
this should be made a CONDITION of any Planning DECISION.
ANY surface water discharge into ANY watercourses in, on, under or near the site requires
CONSENT from the Drainage Board.
