CIRIA announced new SuDs and SABs facilitation workshops

CIRIA, has announced a range of new SuDS and SAB facilitation workshops in a bid to help local authorities prepare for legislative changes.

The Flood and Water Management Act 2010 introduced a range of new responsibilities for local authorities around sustainable drainage systems (SuDS). With the schedule relating to SuDS likely to be enacted later this year, lead local flood authorities will become responsible for setting up SuDS Approval Bodies (SABs) which evaluate and approve SuDS in new developments as well as adopt and maintain SuDS serving more than one property.

The one-day facilitation workshops will help local authorities prepare for their new responsibilities of approving, adopting and maintaining SuDS schemes to meet the draft national standards for sustainable drainage, which are currently being consulted on.

Commenting, Mr Richard Wills, Executive Director, Lincolnshire County Council, said: “It is crucial that local authorities are equipped with the skills that they need to tackle these vital legislative changes.

“These workshops will make an important contribution to providing practical guidance that will work on the ground.”

Sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) are drainage solutions that provide an alternative to the direct channelling of surface water through networks of pipes and sewers to nearby watercourses.

By mimicking natural drainage regimes, SuDS aim to reduce surface water flooding, improve water quality and enhance the amenity and biodiversity value of the environment. SuDS achieve this by lowering flow rates, increasing water storage capacity and reducing the transport of pollution to the water environment.

Provision for SuDS and the national standards required for their design, construction, maintenance and operation is included in the Flood and Water Management Act 2010.
