Cross Valley Development

Volume 447: debated on Tuesday 6 June 2006

My petition was organised by Mr. Michael Green and Mr. Nigel Williams of Kislingbury, and is signed by residents of Kislingbury, Rothersthorpe, Harpole and other parts of Northamptonshire. It declares

that the Environment Agency has no authority to base flood risk advice for the CVLR

—the Cross Valley link road—

and development on the Easter 1998 floodplain, given it is a lower assessment than the 1947 floodplain consideration and subsequent assessments in 1978 and 1999. The Petitioners, therefore, request that the House of Commons call upon the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Select Committee to investigate why the Environment Agency has changed its advice without the authority to do so.

To lie upon the Table.
