This course focuses on giving a detailed understanding of surface water drainage planning and design to meet current standards and best practice guidance.

New course date announced: 6 February 2018

The course takes attendees step by step through the basis and requirements of current criteria and methods for delivering compliant surface water management systems. It provides them with an understanding of the inputs, outputs and parameters required in commonly used tools and models (including the uksuds.com tools) – and how to assess whether the right or sufficient information has been presented with drainage submissions. This one-day course assumes that attendees are already familiar with the concept of SuDS and are aware of the requirements of the non-statutory SuDS standards (Defra, 2015). The focus is on the requirements for developments in England, but Welsh, Scottish and Northern Ireland requirements are be touched upon where appropriate.
