Peterborough SuDS is a website to help inform, educate and promote the use of Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) on all developments.

The website has been developed by Peterborough City Council‘s Sustainable Drainage Team to provide advice and help in a fairly new sector of drainage within developments. Land drainage is nothing new in Peterborough, we’ve been doing it for hundreds of years. This is about going back to our roots and making surface water visible again.

What Are SuDS?

What Are SuDS?

SuDS are a way of mimicking natural drainage in a built environment. Instead of putting surface water into pipes under the ground, water is allowed to stay at the surface where it is cleaned and stored, preventing flooding and improving the quality of the water before it either soaks into the ground or discharges to a watercourse, this also allows for biodiversity to be created.
