Water Sensitive Urban Design - case studies and feedback required

Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) places urban design at the heart of managing the water cycle providing better places for people to live, work and play.

This CIRIA project aims to deliver a scoping study that develops a vision for WSUD in the UK, exploring the application of international experience, guidance, identifying and (where possible) evaluating the broader benefits. It will draw on case studies from other countries and provide a UK context.

CIRIA seeks industry views and case studies
In order to understand its potential we would like feedback from a range of practitioners and disciplines on how water management and urban design can be better integrated. WSUD is an emerging concept but please don't let that phase you – we are keen to get your thoughts on the general approach and also any projects you or your organisation has been involved in.

To provide your views please complete the feedback survey which will take no more then twenty minutes to complete. The survey closes on 30 July 2012.

To provide case studies please contact Louise Clarke at louise.clarke@ciria.org. If you have any images to include, please also send these in jpeg format as an attachment in your email.
