·         More clarity and the reasons for this policy should be provided as it is not clear what are the consequences of the rain water drainage as a result of basements.

·         London clay in itself stops any water drainage. So what is happening to the rain water currently in gardens without any basements should be evaluated and any new policy should be based on such assessment.

·         Provision of rain water storage with controlled release in the drainage system is acceptable and therefore the policy should clarify this in more detail.
