Policy DM1: 'Flooding and drainage' The policy advises that sustainable drainage systems are expected, and that alternatives will only be permitted where sustainable drainage is impractical and the alternative 'does not raise insurmountable objections'.

The ancient rhynes and drainage ditches serve a purpose and allow winter flooding. If they are ignored by developers it will lead to future drainage problems. All these are not always the obvious ones and it is noticeable that in lower Clevedon and along the M5 there is evidence that

Policy DM1 Flooding and Drainage We would like to see tree planting highlighted as a green infrastructure option to reduce the rate of surface water discharge from new development. We note that Policy CS9 (Green Infrastructure) of the Adopted Core Strategy states that priority will be given to: 'the continued development of a network of green spaces, water bodies, paths and cycleways and bridleways in and around the urban areas, recognising the value of sustainable drainage systems for green in
