SuDS guidance overview

SuDS have been successfully designed and incorporated into an increasing number of developments from residential schemes and schools to motorway service areas and commercial properties. There are a range of design manuals to help ensure that designs are suitable. The SuDS Manual (CIRIA publication C753) will guide you through the design process and can be referred to by those checking designs and calculations to ensure that sustainable drainage principles have been applied.

This website does not give specific design guidance, however useful information can be obtained from a variety of initiatives guidance documents, tools and training. A list of national and international information sources is the resources section, please let Paul or Suzanne know if there are other examples of initiatives we should include.
