Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems - latest guidance
All plans and designs for new housing or commercial developments should address the issue of sustainable urban drainage systems (SuDS) from the earliest stages. This enables the best SuDS to be delivered to mitigate flooding risk, avoid overloading the drainage network and provide water quality, biodiversity and public amenity benefits.
The purpose of these new route maps is to provide an overview of the main stages of delivering SuDS, with numerous relevant hyperlinks at the appropriate point.
Who should read the new guidance?:
- Construction contractors.
- Water engineers.
- Chartered environmentalists.
