Flooding – New guidance could help protect homes and business and benefit wildlife

The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT) and RSPB have developed new guidance that will support Local Authorities and developers to use sustainable drainage systems to protect homes and businesses from flooding, and to provide a safe habitat for wildlife. 

The guidance manual breaks down the steps to creating high value green spaces at low cost. These have the attractive potential to be liveable spaces that bring communities together and benefit wildlife, while making the landscape more resilient to climate change.
