The ‘Going with the flow’ infographic describes some of the key objectives and outcomes of SuDS. Based on four case studies, it demonstrates what can be achieved with early engagement and appropriate design. The case studies highlight how SuDS can enable savings in construction costs, manage local flood risk and deliver great places.
Suzanne Simmons, from CIRIA and susdrain, said, “The Ministerial Statement from Eric Pickles in December 2014 placed the responsibility for the delivery of SuDS in the planning process. This is a new responsibility for Local Planning Authorities (LPA), which will mean that LPA officers and elected members need to be aware of the basics of SuDS delivery and become intelligent clients when working with other stakeholders. We hope that the infographic will provide a useful tool to improve understanding.”
