Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS)

Adoption of SuDS

A developer can choose to have SuDS devices adopted by us or retained by the development. We will generally adopt SuDs that are within public open spaces, serve more than one property and are designed in accordance with Ciria guidance. 

Adoption will be made following a Section 106 agreement and all SuDS devices will attract commuted sums.

SuDS can be retained by the development in perpetuity and looked after by an accountable management company with a maintenance plan that must be accepted by ourselves.
