Development Control

Internal Drainage Boards are operating authorities as described in PPS25 – Development and Flood Risk.  In this capacity the Bedford Group advises Planning Authorities as to the appropriate surface water and flood risk management measures required for development both within the Drainage District and outside the district if such development is considered by the IDB to have an impact on the Drainage District.
