Please note we are currently not allocating any Council Owned or Managed SANG whilst we undertake a review of remaining capacity. A decision will be made at Cabinet on 1st October 2020 regarding release of future SANG mitigation.

Surface Water Flooding Proforma

The surface water flooding proforma is a new tool being trialled by Hart District Council. The aim of the proforma is to make a smoother planning application process for small scale developments located in areas that flood from surface water.

You should consider using the Surface Water Flooding Proforma for sites of less than 1 ha in Flood Zone 1 that flood from surface water. You can check if your site floods from surface water by checking the Environment Agency's maps.

Please fill in the Surface Water Flooding Proforma below and submit the completed form with the rest of your planning application documents.
