Help inform the delivery of high-quality SuDS and the implementation of Schedule 3 of the Flood and Water Management Act.
WSP, CIWEM and CIRIA on behalf of Defra are undertaking a review of the skills and training needed, following Government’s acceptance of the recommendation to make SuDS mandatory in new developments.
A survey has been developed for those that approve, commission and design SuDS schemes, as well as those involved in other aspects of delivery. The survey should take around 20 minutes to complete.
Successful implementation of high-quality SuDS and the implementation of Schedule 3 will depend on professionals having the skills and knowledge to design, construct, approve and maintain SuDS. To do this local authorities and developers will need to access expertise in SuDS approval and design, as well as flood risk management, water quality, biodiversity, amenity and other aspects.
