Yes. My proposed Further Alterations to the London Plan set the strategic policy context; this includes a new policy 4A.5vii containing a drainage hierarchy.A considerable amount of more detailed guidance is contained within the Supplementary Guidance on Sustainable Design and Construction published in May 2006.
