Clarifying perspectives and determining the effect of new legislation alongside changing attitudes
Do you know what makes a good SuDS scheme?
With Schedule 3 of the Flood and Water Management Act yet to be fully commenced there are many concerns over the implementation and adoption of SuDS. Further work needs to be done to ensure the many groups involved understand what a good SuDS scheme is and how best they can work together.
What are the concerns and benefits of implementing and adopting SuDS?
The SuDS Water Management Summit will bring together local authorities, developers, highways, landscape architects, contractors, engineering consultants and SuDS specialists. Register now for two high impact days of knowledge sharing.
This event will educate and inform everyone involved in the industry on key issues including:
- What makes a good SuDS scheme with reference to the National Standard and exemplar case studies
- How to implement the SAB with a case study from Cambridgeshire County Council who are going through the process in advance of the legislation
- The multiple benefits of SuDS including their wider implications such as biodiversity, community benefits and aesthetics
- How to take a holistic approach to ensure efficient surface water management and make the most of the land space available
- Are SuDS as expensive as perceived and how can they be implemented without proving costly
- Understanding cost effective ways to retrofit SuDS including what urban areas can really benefit and how retrofitting mitigates flood risk
At the SuDS Water Management Summit hear from those who have had a hand with creating the legislation as well as those involved with the implementation and adoption of SuDS.
