SuDS are so diverse we couldn’t possibly have all the information on one website! To help you that bit more please see below for resources and links to other websites that have other useful content. From how to work out what rainfall event to use to finding the best ‘grass’ for green roofs, you’ll find it here!
CIRIA The SuDS Manual (C753)
This has long been held as the approach for SuDS best practice, including details on water quality and pollutant removal mechanisms. There are sections to set out how to design the site and estimate storage needs as well as considerations for the technical design of assets.
Non Statutory Technical Standards
These were developed by a multiagency group including working with government to create a checklist for SuDS design and achieving the need for SuDS in the planning process.
A separate interpretation of these standards by LASOO (Local Authority SuDS Officer Organisation) helps to translate what a Lead Local Flood Authority may expect to see in a new planning application
