SUDS foundation, Manchester

17 October 2012

The Flood and Water Management Act highlights the role that Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) can make in managing local flood risk with proposals to make SuDS a requirement in new developments. Awareness by practitioners and their implementation in developments is steadily increasing. Practical experience has led to a re-definition of best practice and a greater understanding of basic principles. It is important that practitioners not only have access to the best possible information, but also have the confidence to implement guidance and use SuDS within developments in line with growing regulatory pressures. This course has been developed to complement current regulations and the latest SuDS guidance (The SuDS manual). The training programme will enable practitioners to efficiently plan, design, construct and manage SuDS schemes.
