The Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) engagement document will be launched on CIRIA stand S1836 on Tuesday 5 March at 4pm. Please register for your free ticket to Ecobuild and come along to the launch and networking reception. Visitors to the launch will be given a complimentary copy of the report and have a chance to meet the CIRIA and the WSUD team.

Commenting Richard Ashley, Chair of WSUD scoping study said “Water Sensitive Urban Design is an approach to manage water in a more holistic way where the water cycle is fully considered during the urban design and development process. WSUD concepts recognise the many values of water and can bring multiple benefits over and beyond the management for flood risk, improve water quality, water availability and reduce the effects of climate change. The CIRIA scoping study has enabled us to understand how Water Sensitive Urban Design can be embraced in the UK.”

Visitors to the CIRIA stand will also find information on CIRIA’s activities around Green Infrastructure, sustainable drainage and WSUD as well as special offers on a range of our activities and there will be an opportunity to win £500 worth of CIRIA publications.
