Author: National Rivers Authority Severn Trent Region
Document Type: Monograph
This is the fourth edition of thes Guidelines. The first was issued in 1986 by the Severn Trent Water Authority under the title "Guidelines for Land Drainage Consenting and Planning Liaison". In 1991, the document was extensively amended and extended in its coverage to become the Flood Defence Development Control Manual, and to reflect the policies and duties of the National Rivers Authority. The third edition encompassed the new legislation which came into force on 1 December 1991. This fourth edition has been further enhanced and amended and includes nationally adopted policies where they have been formulated. The document has also been retitled to become the Flood Defence Technical Liaison Manual to avoid confusion with documents produced by Planning Liaison.
