South Yorkshire Interim Guidance for Sustainable Drainage Systems
This document has been produced by a working group from the Local Authorities of Barnsley MBC, Doncaster MBC, Rotherham MBC and Sheffield City Council. The South Yorkshire Authorities are committed to making our area a place that provides the best possible quality of life for all who live and work here. Making it more sustainable is an important part of supporting this vision and it is therefore implicit that new development should incorporate sustainability measures that help achieve this goal. During the design and implementation of SuDS consideration should be given to ensuring that flood risk, both on and offsite and water quality is managed. In addition design should seek to provide environmental improvements and protection, manage health and safety proportionately and ensure stability and durability of construction.
