Flooding already costs the UK £1bn a year, and this figure is expected to rise. We need ‘out of the box’ thinking to solve the problems posed by flood waters, climate change and urban development.

This thought leadership debate will explore the future of drainage, focusing on whether SuDS increase value for developers.
