About this event

The Flood and Water Management Act 2010 Schedule 3 came into effect in Wales on 7 January 2019.

All developments of more than one building and/or where the construction area is 100 sq m or more, require sustainable drainage systems. The systems must be designed and built in accordance with Statutory Standards and schemes must be approved by the SuDS Approving Body (SAB) before construction work begins.

One year on we explore the events that led to the implementation of mandatory standards in Wales; the role of the SuDS Approving Body and the implications for England.

This is a joint event between ICE Lancashire and the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management.

Parking: University Parking for the event is available. Please note that the designated car park 19 is a short walk from the University and is located off Victoria Street (PR1 7HD). A downloadable ‘free’ car-parking permit will be uploaded to the events webpage.
