Do you have a view on updating the Non-Statutory Technical Standards for SuDS?

Monday, June 01, 2020

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has commissioned research to explore whether updating the English Non-Statutory Technical Standards for SuDS (NSTS) could help deliver SuDS that provide multiple benefits beyond managing surface water runoff, contributing to improved climate adaptation, health and wellbeing and better places and spaces.

A key part of this work is to understand, through a survey how the current NSTS are used, and to recommend how they could be improved to manage local flood risk and deliver multiple benefits. The survey should be completed by those with an interest in SuDS delivery, particularly those who approve, design and commission SuDS for new developments in England.

This research is being undertaken by a team led by HR Wallingford that includes CIRIA, McCloy Consulting, Illman Young Landscape Design and others.

It would be very valuable if you could please complete the survey here:
