SuDS Pro-Forma Consultation now live

Posted: 27/01/20

A draft pro-forma on sustainable drainage systems has been produced and is now being presented for consultation and feedback.

The pro-forma supports developers and regulators in summarising and confirming how surface water from a development will be managed sustainably under current and future conditions.

It follows government frameworks and guidance, and the aim is for it to be adopted by planning authorities across the North West and help information to be exchanged on SuDS features.

Comments are welcome from anyone with an interest in sustainable drainage, but the primary audiences are as follows:

  • Local Planning Authorities
  • All flood risk management authorities (Lead Local Flood Authorities, Highways Authorities, Environment Agency, United Utilities)
  • Developers (and agents)
  • Consultants

The consultation period runs from Monday 27th January to 12pm on Friday 21st February.
