CIRIA launches WSUD Ideas Book at Ecobuild 2013

CIRIA’s new WSUD (water sensitive urban design) Ideas Book was officially launched at Ecobuild 2013. Professor Richard Ashley (project steering group chair) gave a short opening speech before a drinks reception where guests met those involved in the report including the project team of Arup and AECOM, as well as project funders and supporters.


The document brings together a number of key strands and has identified the benefits and opportunities of WSUD in a UK context. It’s a journey that no one organisation can take on their own and it will require collaboration to embrace the organisations, disciplines and individuals to deliver a radical change in how water is perceived and managed in the UK. The engagement document will be followed by a full scoping study later in the Spring.


Together with its stakeholders CIRIA is considering approaches to further progress WSUD in the UK (this may mean more work to collate the business case, case studies and supporting planners more to develop a vision for water and resource management). More information will follow soon, but for now why not download your copy of the engagement document.
