Further to Gary's comment about permeability. Amendment C90 has nothing to do with this site/application or permeability. Perhaps Gary meant a different C number.
There are no planning controls at present that indicate a permeability requirement of anything different to the orthodox provision of 20% as stipulated by Rescode.
Our proposal has a permeability level of 28%. It thus does better than the 20% that is expected of it by Rescode.
Not only that, and on top of that, we are ‘volunteering’, to re-harvest water from the roof via water tanks. This is IN ADDITION to the 28% that is natural permeable area.
There is no policy requirement to have water tanks.
This proposal could scrap its water tanks, have 8% less permeable area and still be compliant in relation to permeability.
It is untenable to suggest that the outcome we propose in relation to permeability is therefore unacceptable.
