CIRIA seeks support for update of SuDS Manual

It’s been five years since the SuDS Manual (C697) was produced, in that time experience and knowledge in some key areas has improved. With the future commencement of Schedule 3 of the Flood and Water Management Act and development of the National Standards the CIRIA's SuDS Manual (C697) requires updating to reflect changes in good practice and regulations. This update should also capture changes in planning policy, cost effective approaches to fulfilling design
criteria etc and managing other liabilities and responsibilities. The process will prioritise the delivery of key outputs urgently required:

  • Framework for health and safety.
  • Design process to support cost effective delivery.
  • Specification for construction and inspection.
  • Adoption evaluation and maintenance.
