WAT2  Protection Of The Water Environment  Strategic Policy

Where appropriate and particularly in vulnerable areas, the local planning authority will impose land-use planning controls and obligations directed at the prevention of the pollution of watercourses and groundwater.

Reasoned justification :

19.10 The prevention of pollution of watercourses and sources of groundwater is becoming increasingly important. This is supported by EC directives on water quality objectives. The UDP can assist by controlling land-uses likely to cause harm to the water environment, thereby complementing the pollution control aims of other regulatory bodies.
