Building Control overview of surface water flooding Beck Rise Beckermet

A Wilkinson made this Freedom of Information request to Copeland Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Copeland Borough Council,

Please provide me with a copy of the overview of the basic requirement of Approved Document H in relation to the control of surface water which was provided to Cumbria County Council Officers approxiamately 2 years ago.

The overview was in relation to flooding from the newer development at Beck Rise, Beckermet planning application No.4/00/0796/0 and was provided by the Council's Building Control Manager. The overview allegedly ruled out surface water as being a potential issue.

Yours faithfully,

A Wilkinson
