After a period of consultation, the Environment Agency has decided to change the main river map for Weatherhill Stream, Smallfield, Tandridge.
The Environment Agency is making this change as a ‘determination’ under section 193C(1) of the Water Resources Act 1991. A determination is a formal decision to change the main river map.
The determination is that we shall correct the main river map:
- between national grid reference (NGR) TQ 31002 43621 and NGR TQ 30708 43606
- between NGR TQ 30990 43613 and NGR TQ 30708 43606
- between NGR TQ 31779 43221 and NGR TQ 32011 43148
- between NGR TQ 32005 43148 and NGR TQ 31797 43219
For each correction, the main river is to be the watercourse shown as an ‘addition’ on the main river consultation map rather than the watercourse shown as a ‘deletion’.
These changes mean that the map will show the correct location of the watercourse. They do not change who is responsible for carrying out flood risk management work on the watercourse.
How to view the changes
You can see the original proposals on the main river consultation map. The green line (‘addition’) on the map is the proposed new line to show the correct position of the watercourse. The red line (‘deletion’) is the incorrect line, which will be deleted.
Or you can see the main river consultation map at:
The change will appear as a proposal on the main river maps until 6 weeks after the date of this notice. This is to allow for appeals to the decision. The main river map will be changed to reflect the determination on 30 November 2016.
