Dear Sir/Madam

PLANNING ADVICE NOTE 79: WATER AND DRAINAGE

I am pleased to enclose a copy of the Planning Advice Note on Water and Drainage ( PAN 79). It has been prepared with the expert advice of a working group made up local authority planning professionals, Scottish Water, Scottish Environment Protection Agency ( SEPA), Homes for Scotland and Communities Scotland.

The Planning Advice Note provides advice on good practice in relation to the provision of water and drainage in a planning context. In particular, it encourages partnership working and the sharing of information in order to ensure a common understanding of capacity constraints and agreement on the means to accommodate new development. It explains the framework within which Scottish Water provides strategic water infrastructure and pays a contribution towards the cost of local infrastructure. It clarifies the role of the planning authority in setting the pattern and direction of development to inform the planning and delivery of new infrastructure in a coordinated way. It contains advice on the appropriateness of private schemes. It also highlights the respective roles of Scottish Water and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency ( SEPA), and indicates when and how they should interact with the planning system.

Further copies are available from the Scottish Executive Development Department, Planning Division, 2-H Victoria Quay, Edinburgh EH6 6QQ (0131 244 7543). The document is also available on our web site: www.scotland.gov.uk/planning

If you have queries about the content of the PAN please contact Graham Jones (0131 244 7550) graham.jones@scotland.gsi.gov.uk

Yours faithfully
