SuDS regulations come into force

On 7 January 2019, the Welsh Government implemented Schedule 3 of the Flood and Water Management Act (2010). The new mandatory regulations make the incorporation of sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) compulsory in new developments in order to help reduce flood risk and improve water quality. The Minister’s Standards support the ‘four pillars’ of SuDS with Standards covering flood risk, water quality, amenity and biodiversity and is aligned with the CIRIA SuDS Manual.
