Stodmarsh Nutrient Neutral Methodology

Dover District Council were advised of issues relating to water quality in the Stodmarsh Lakes system and its catchment by Natural England for the first time in mid-July 2020. Officers subsequently attended a briefing session organised by Natural England to understand the implications for future development in the District which is confined to new developments draining to the Dambridge Waste water treatment works in Wingham. As a result of that process DDC is currently taking independent advice from drainage consultants (expert in the field) to confirm or otherwise the impacts set out in the guidance. Natural England are aware that this work is ongoing and the outcome of this and subsequent discussions with Natural England will inform the implications of this guidance for development decisions within the district. It is hoped this work will conclude around Jan/Feb 2022. In the meantime the Council is also working in conjunction with other East Kent authorities, Kent County Council and government agencies to share information and look at solutions that both safeguard the Stodmarsh Nature Reserve and enable new development to come forward with East Kent.
