Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) make a vital contribution to managing local flood risk and water quality as well as providing opportunities for biodiversity and amenity in new developments and redevelopments. SuDS are required in all new major developments and awareness by practitioners and regulators and their implementation is steadily increasing. Over time knowledge and experience has improved and it’s important that this good practice is shared to promote improved understanding and high quality SuDS that deliver multiple benefits.

This course has been developed to complement the latest SuDS guidance - The SuDS Manual (C753). The training programme will enable practitioners to efficiently plan, design, construct and manage SuDS schemes.

Who should attend

This engaging course is designed for those that are new to SuDS requiring an overview of the aims, benefits and the components. It will also explain the SuDS philosophy and main objectives.

The training will be relevant to clients, consulting engineers, local authorities, highway authorities, developers, sewerage  undertakers, landscape architects, contractors, planners, architects, environmental regulators and manufacturers and suppliers.
