Help us to inform the delivery of high-quality SuDS and the implementation of Schedule 3.
We’re working with WSP and CIRIA on behalf of Defra to review the skills and training needed for SuDS delivery, following Government’s acceptance of the recommendation to make SuDS mandatory in new developments and implement Schedule 3.
A survey has been developed for those that approve, commission and design SuDS schemes, as well as those involved in other aspects of delivery. The survey should take around 20 minutes to complete.
Successful implementation of high-quality SuDS and the implementation of Schedule 3 will depend on professionals having the skills and knowledge to design, construct, approve and maintain SuDS. To do this local authorities and developers will need to access expertise in SuDS approval and design, as well as flood risk management, water quality, biodiversity, amenity and other aspect.
The survey can be completed online here.
The survey will close 20 March 2023
PDFs of the survey are available for the potential SuDS approval body, Developers and/or practitioner and others - please click on the links below for the appropriate surveys.
