Urban creep

Urban creep is: ‘The increasing density of development, due to extension, paving over og gardens and other permeable areas, and the addition or extension of roads or buildings, which increases the impermeability of developed areas and causes rates and volumes of runoff to rise.’

Ref The SuDS Manual (C753), published by CIRIA in 2015.
