Sustainable Drainage Requirements *New

From 6th April 2015 Local planning policy and decisions on major developments(10 dwellings or more; or equivalent non-residential or mixed development) are expected to ensure that sustainable drainage systems for the management of run-off are put in place.

The Sustainable Drainage: Guide to Design, Adoption and Maintenance has been drafted to provide detailed guidance to support the implementation of sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) in future development in Birmingham, with particular emphasis on the local requirements for SuDS on all major development.

You can find the specific objectives of this draft guidance and a copy of the guidance here .....
