Draft Sustainable Drainage Systems Supplementary Planning Document

We would like your views on the draft document

Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) are material planning considerations in the planning process. They provide further information and additional detail to policies within the Local Plan.

What are Sustainable Drainage Systems?

Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) mimic natural drainage to manage surface water run-off from a development. SuDS allow for the collection, storage and treatment of surface water in order to reduce flood risk caused by development. They also help to improve water quality. In addition SuDS can improve landscape amenity and biodiversity. See more information on our Sustainable Drainage Systems webpage.

Why has the draft Sustainable Drainage Systems SPD been produced?

The pdf icon draft Sustainable Drainage Systems SPD [1Mb] provides guidance on the approach that should be taken to SuDS in new developments in West Berkshire so as to manage and mitigate surface water flood risk.

You can read more information about the Sustainable Drainage System SPD online.

We would like your comments on the draft document. You can submit comments through the Local Plan Conusultation Portal or by completing a doc icon representation form [93kb] and returning it to the Planning Policy Team.
