In Wales, from 7 January 2019, all new developments of more than one dwelling or where the construction area is 100m2 or more, will require Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS), in accordance with Schedule 3 to the Flood and Water Management Act 2010.
The Welsh government requires SuDS on new developments to be designed and built in accordance with the Statutory SuDS Standards published by the Welsh Ministers, and all SuDS schemes must be approved by the local authority, before construction work begins.
SuDS has gradually become a mandatory practise for new developments and extensions in England since 2015. This new policy in Wales represents another important milestone in the UK to step up the SuDS implementation, in order to combat the increasing flood risk from surface water run-off.
Innervision Design Ltd has undertaken SuDS for many projects, which range from single dwellings to large residential and commercial developments with more than 300 units. Though many projects undertaken are located in England, our consultants are confident in providing the same high quality service to the prospective Welsh clients. We look forward to receiving your calls and emails. Please feel free to get in touch for a friendly discussion and some initial advice.
