Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS)
Harmil Environmental have extensive experience in preparing Sustainable Drainage Statements (SuDS) or Drainage Impact Assessments which may be required for planning applications.
Working throughout the UK, we have worked on a wide range of projects throughout the UK and continue to work with private clients, architects, developers and local authorities. Our aim is to make developments proceed as smoothly as possible whilst working under the jurisdiction of the wildlife laws.
When is this important?
It is required by law that any development site of 10 dwellings or more or the industrial/commercial equivalent is assessed. If your development’s is located within Flood Zones 2 or 3, or within an area identified as having a surface water flooding problem, you are also likely to need a drainage strategy.
A sustainable drainage system (SuDS) or surface water drainage strategy looks at how surface water affects a site and the surrounding area. It considers how your development will be affected by this and establishes how a developer can meet the requirements for the site set by national and local planning policy.
