Pock Flood Defence – Unmitigated Risks

Before either the Pocklington Flood Alleviation Scheme (FAS) or the adjoining 200 dwelling Persimmon Development can be granted planning permission a risk assessment must be undertaken.

I am informed at this point:

  • This will reveal risks which cannot be mitigated.
  • The developer must inform all potential buyers of the unmitigated risks.
  • Potential buyers must inform their mortgage and insurance company of the risks.

I am of the opinion that as there will be unmitigated risks neither the FAS or the development will be able to proceed.
