Killingworth and Longbenton, Surface Water Management Scheme (Light case study)


Killingworth and Longbenton are areas of North Tyneside, England with a history of flooding and a need for changes to surface water management to improve water quality and enable growth.

Together Northumbrian Water Group, North Tyneside Council, and the Environment Agency delivered an innovative multi-site partnership project using SuDS to manage surface water and to provide opportunities for biodiversity, new habitat creation and educational facilities.

Retention ponds, detention areas, two stage channels and wetland areas delivered flood risk reduction to over 3,500 residential and commercial properties across the catchment.
