Ordinary watercourses and consent
As a Lead Local Flood Authority, we are responsible for ordinary watercourse consenting and enforcement activities.
Not all works will need consent.
These activities need consent:
- something that is likely to alter or impact the flow or storage of water
- erection of a culvert within an ordinary watercourse. (Flow should be determined as bank full flow conditions).
