Leaping into Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS)
Wednesday, February 29, 2012 from 9:30 AM to 4:00 PM (GMT)
Nottingham, United Kingdom
The enactment of the Floods and Water Management Act seems a long time ago, but the hard work starts in earnest when Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) are implemented through the SuDS National Standards in 2012. This seminar will provide an update on the latest legislative changes and discuss the implications for developers, practitioners and unitary authorities alike. It will focus on the practicalities of putting the new policy into practice and the challenges which lie ahead. Drawing on the experience of successful case studies and support tools, potential solutions and new ways of working will be discussed and developed. This seminar will also highlight the new technical resources that CIRIA and BGS are providing and it will give you the opportunity to voice your opinions on the resources that would help facilitate SuDS implementation.
This event is organised jointly by the Modern Built Environment and Environmental Sustainability Knowledge Transfer Networks, the British Geological Survey and CIRIA. It will provide a platform for high profile speakers, whilst allowing delegates to contribute to discussions via two breakout sessions on the challenges that lie ahead and the solutions that have already been realised.
Who should attend?
The event will be of interest to local authority planners, consultants and contractors and will also feature SuDS-related exhibition stands.
