17 2020 - Shit handling pipes, installation at Shit
Creek, Herstmonceux, the field adjacent is to be built on with 70
houses flushing excrement down a network of pipes, but of even more
concern is the pollution from the run off of pesticides from 70 gardens
and garages, through Lime
Pond. In that Southern Water are providing the infrastructure to
make that pollution a reality, they may be held to be vicariously
liable. If any of the soil pipes from the proposed houses were to leak
into the pond, they would be criminally liable for sure.
importance of a supply of fresh (potable) drinking water cannot be
overstated. Indeed, the world has a water shortage, with some countries
not having a distribution system of piped H2O, that we take for granted
in Britain. Despite the UK being a relatively well rained on country
with many reservoirs and such, we still have water shortages, hosepipe
bans and the like.
are virtually no wells in regular use these days, though boreholes are
becoming more popular with a change in the law as to personal use. There
are the odd exceptions, one locally being in Herstmonceux
Wells, because there are dual brick sinkings in close proximity. A
reliable water supply is a significant asset, sometimes very vulnerable
to adjacent development. The wells in Lime Park are vulnerable, should
the ground become contaminated with herbicides and hydrocarbons, without
suitable protections from the dominant landscape.
In McAdams Homes Ltd v Robinson  EWCA Civ 214, the Court of Appeal ruled that an implied or prescriptive easement cannot continue to be used where the dominant land has changed use
(or ownership) or has been developed if the development of the dominant land represent a radical change in its character or a change in its identity and the use of the dominant land, as redeveloped, results in a substantial increase or alteration in the burden on the servient land.
As reinforced by Bernel Ltd v Canal and River Trust  EWHC 16 (Ch) 7 April 2021,
where a developer was unable on the facts to establish a right to drain onto its neighbour’s land without permission.
please leave ours alone : )
In this case, the judge felt that changing the site from one modest dwelling to nine new dwellings was a radical change in the character of the dominant land. However, the flow of surface water and treated foul water in accordance with an approved scheme permitted by the Environment Agency
(EA) would not have amounted to a substantial increase in the burden on the servient land.
the case of the proposed (up to) 70 house development on land at Lime
Cross, adjacent to Lime Wells, there is also the matter of
groundwater contamination regulations, that was not considered by the
courts in the above cases, adding an extra layer of difficulty for
developers. Especially where the general rule is that all new
developments must be water neutral. Thus, those enjoying water extracted
from Lime Wells, must be able to continue to enjoy such rights unfettered
- in that it is arguable that to be water neutral, the threat of
contamination must be abated in accordance with a permitted scheme
approved by the EA. Such scheme to include a long term maintenance plan.

17 2020 - Southern Water seem a bit pre-occupied with security for
some reason. We wonder why that might be. Might it have anything to do
with the fact that they appear, and it is alleged, that they are part of
the planning problem in the Wealden area of Sussex. Part of the problem
as in providing services to inappropriate development.

what about complicity? If, as it is alleged, there is sure to be surface
water pollution draining into rivers downstream from the 70 proposed
houses at Lime
facts as alleged appear to be that Southern Water began construction of
the pumping stations in Chappel Row without the benefit of planning
permission, in that Latimer and/or Clarion Housing had not complied with
a condition. Hence, it appears to those making such enquiries that there
may have been a conspiracy to subvert the planning process, with
Southern Water claiming use of statutory powers, when they may not have
been the owners of the land, hence were operating as agents for
Latimer/Clarion - to abuse the planning system. These are the
allegations, that tend to support the contention that dirty tricks may
also have taken place concerning the displacement of badgers.

THEIR TREATMENTS MAKE SENSE?
When looked at under a magnifying glass, the decision to build a pumping
station off Chapel Row (Church Road), and pump the putrid defecations up
hill to meet with the A271, and then along Gardner Street to Victoria
Road, adds more potential problems to an already problematic
example, the additional pressure might lead to backwash downhill to the
village, where there have been problems before. It makes much more sense
to drain downhill. It's called gravity!
WHAT IS WATER NEUTRALITY?
The definition of water neutrality in Natural England’s Statement is taken from that
used in the final report of Water Neutrality Study: Part A – Individual Local Authority
“For every new development, total water use in the region after the development must
be equal to or less than the total water-use in the region before the new development.”
HOW IS WATER NEUTRALITY ACHIEVED?
Water neutrality is achieved through a combination of water efficiency measures for
new developments to reduce the water use per person (called per capita consumption).
The amount of
water from new homes, offices and other developments that use public water supply in the Sussex North water supply zone is then calculated
on an individual or cumulative basis to produce a predicted “demand” for water from
This total amount of water from growth is then offset by reducing the amount of
water currently used in the Sussex North water supply zone.
MEASURES THAT COULD BE APPLIED INCLUDE:
• household and non-household visits (also called water audits) to provide
advice on the wise use of water, and to fit water saving devices
• expansion of Southern Water’s leakage reduction programme above their
• extension to the metering programme followed by adoption of smart meters
at a faster rate than required in the existing water company business plan
• adoption of rainwater harvesting or grey water recycling in new builds and
retrofitting them in existing housing
• where practical, adoption of a largescale rainwater harvesting scheme to
remove demand from toilet flushing in a large business park
Southern Water already have an ambitious programme of water efficiency measures as
part of their Target 100 activities.
This limits the options that the Local Authorities have to independently achieve neutrality as any measure to achieve neutrality must be in addition to measures already planned.
Further discussion is recommended with Southern Water to understand the extent of the Target 100 programme, what contribution could be made to neutrality from measures it contains, and whether there is an opportunity to go faster or further than the Southern Water’s plan.
The analysis in this report shows that a package of measures is likely to be required in order to achieve neutrality, with no one measure likely to offset the total demand.
warming is likely to increase the risk of water shortages, according
to a report from the Climate
HOW LONG WILL WATER NEUTRALITY BE REQUIRED?
It is likely that achieving water neutrality will be important for as long as the adverse effect risk from water supply abstraction continues. This may well remain the case until the Habitats Sites in question are restored to favourable conservation status. Though there is an investigation to try to resolve the uncertainties this is not thought likely to remove the adverse effect risk with certainty.
It should be possible to phase out the requirement for water neutrality once a sustainable long-term water supply has been secured for the region, and this is close enough to being delivered that the commencement of use of any development being assessed is not likely to occur before delivery of this supply.
WHERE DOES THE NATURAL ENGLAND STATEMENT APPLY?
At present the Natural England Statement applies to development that requires a public water supply from Southern Water’s Sussex North water supply zone. That said, the general principle could be applied to any proposed development site, that feed from or to sites where habitats are at potentially risk.
Especially so as our climate continues to warm up.
FARMING & FERTILIZERS - JUDGMENT OF THE COURT (Second Chamber)
7 November 2018 (*) In Joined Cases C‑293/17 and C‑294/17, On those grounds, the Court (Second Chamber) hereby rules:
1. Article 6(3) of Council Directive 92/43/EEC of 21 May 1992 on the conservation of natural habitats and of wild fauna and flora must be interpreted as meaning that the grazing of cattle and the application of fertilisers on the surface of land or below its surface in the vicinity of Natura 2000 sites may be classified as a ‘project’ within the meaning of that provision, even if those activities, in so far as they are not a physical intervention in the natural surroundings, do not constitute a ‘project’ within the meaning of Article 1(2)(a) of Directive 2011/92/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 December 2011 on the assessment of the effects of certain public and private projects on the environment.
2. Article 6(3) of Directive 92/43 must be interpreted as meaning that a recurring activity, such as the application of fertilisers on the surface of land or below its surface, authorised under national law before the entry into force of that directive, may be regarded as one and the same project for the purposes of that provision, exempted from a new authorisation procedure, in so far as it constitutes a single operation characterised by a common purpose, continuity and, inter alia, the location and the conditions in which it is carried out being the same. If a single project was authorised before the system of protection laid down by that provision became applicable to the site in question, the carrying out of that project may nevertheless fall within the scope of Article 6(2) of that directive.
3. Article 6(3) of Directive 92/43 must be interpreted as not precluding national programmatic legislation which allows the competent authorities to authorise projects on the basis of an ‘appropriate assessment’ within the meaning of that provision, carried out in advance and in which a specific overall amount of nitrogen deposition has been deemed compatible with that legislation’s objectives of protection. That is so, however, only in so far as a thorough and in-depth examination of the scientific soundness of that assessment makes it possible to ensure that there is no reasonable scientific doubt as to the absence of adverse effects of each plan or project on the integrity of the site concerned, which it is for the national court to ascertain.
4. Article 6(3) of Directive 92/43 must be interpreted as not precluding national programmatic legislation, such as that at issue in the main proceedings, exempting certain projects which do not exceed a certain threshold value or a certain limit value in terms of nitrogen deposition from the requirement for individual approval, if the national court is satisfied that the ‘appropriate assessment’ within the meaning of that provision, carried out in advance, meets the criterion that there is no reasonable scientific doubt as to the lack of adverse effects of those plans or projects on the integrity of the sites concerned.
5. Article 6(3) of Directive 92/43 must be interpreted as precluding national programmatic legislation, such as that at issue in the main proceedings, which allows a certain category of projects, in the present case the application of fertilisers on the surface of land or below its surface and the grazing of cattle, to be implemented without being subject to a permit requirement and, accordingly, to an individualised appropriate assessment of its implications for the sites concerned, unless the objective circumstances make it possible to rule out with certainty any possibility that those projects, individually or in combination with other projects, may significantly affect those sites, which it is for the referring court to ascertain.
6. Article 6(3) of Directive 92/43 must be interpreted as meaning that an ‘appropriate assessment’ within the meaning of that provision may not take into account the existence of ‘conservation measures’ within the meaning of paragraph 1 of that article, ‘preventive measures’ within the meaning of paragraph 2 of that article, measures specifically adopted for a programme such as that at issue in the main proceedings or ‘autonomous’ measures, in so far as those measures are not part of that programme, if the expected benefits of those measures are not certain at the time of that assessment.
7. Article 6(2) of Directive 92/43 must be interpreted as meaning that measures introduced by national legislation, such as that at issue in the main proceedings, including procedures for the surveillance and monitoring of farms whose activities cause nitrogen deposition and the possibility of imposing penalties, up to and including the closure of those farms, are sufficient for the purposes of complying with that provision.

Water getting stuck into their newest shit pumping station in
Herstmonceux, Sussex. Human feces (or faeces) are the solid or semisolid remains of food that could not be digested or absorbed in the small intestine of humans, but has been rotted down by bacteria in the large intestine. It also contains bacteria and a relatively small amount of metabolic waste products such as bacterially altered bilirubin, and the dead epithelial cells from the lining of the gut. It is discharged through the anus during a process called defecation.
