Released on 12th November 2015, the new SuDS Manual is the UK’s most comprehensive guidance document to support the uptake and delivery of sustainable surface water management – to help manage floods, protect the water environment and create better places and spaces in which to work and live.  It brings SuDS good practice guidance right up to date as discussed in this blog.

SuDS recognise the value of rainwater, seeking to capture, use, delay or absorb it rather than reject it as a nuisance or problem and, in so doing can deliver multiple benefits.  SuDS are also widely recognised by the Government and local authorities as having an important role to play in delivering attractive and resilient communities.

By design, the SuDS Manual is not intended to be a step-by-step guide that will set out a particular solution, but rather gives a toolbox of options that can be used where appropriate.  However, as the manual has over 900 pages and with developed powers and localism giving different interpretations of SuDS, delivering repeatable, reliable solutions that stand the test of time is still a challenge.
