The NHBC Foundation’s guide to Sustainable Drainage Systems (SUDS) explains in practical terms how designers, developers, local authorities and property owners can incorporate SUDs into their housing schemes. Nick Raynsford, MP and Chairman of NHBC Foundation highlighted the importance of the report, commenting: “With this report we hope to educate the building and wider construction industry to ensure sustainable drainage solutions are paramount in design. This is an important step towards minimising pollution from urban run-off and reducing the risks of flooding impacting the local community, which will keep treatment costs to a minimum in the future.” The report is available to download here:
