Water sensitive urban design (WSUD) is an approach to design that delivers greater harmony between water, the environment and communities. This is achieved by integrating water cycle management with the built environment through planning and urban design.
This ideas book brings together a number of key strands and has identified the benefits and opportunities of WSUD in a UK context. It's a journey that no one organisation can take on their own and it will require collaboration to embrace the organisations, disciplines and individuals to deliver a radical change in how water is perceived and managed in the UK.
CIRIA and its funders have produced a suite of outputs to promote water sensitive urban design. Visit www.susdrain.orgISBN: 978-0-86017-726-5
