Features and benefits

As of 6 April 2015, SuDS are required for all new developments in England within areas affected by flood and for all major developments outside those areas. Our SuDSmart report range helps architects, planning consultants, developers and lawyers assess which drainage options are available for a site in order to comply.

We’ve made choosing the right report for you as simple as possible by offering a tiered report range designed to build on detail as required:

Perfect for

The latest guidance for sustainable drainage states that infiltration discharge into the ground is the preferred method for managing surface water. If this isn’t possible, other drainage systems can be introduced.

SuDSmart reports range from screening to more complex assessments, detailing alternative options and outline strategies.

These include attenuation volumes so they can meet Lead Local Flood Authority requirements. They are the most cost effective way to meet local authority planning conditions.
