Causeway to host webinar on drainage approval and adoption

drainage approval

Join Causeway and leading experts on Tuesday 19th July for a free live webinar on the drainage approval and adoption process in Wales

In 2019, the Welsh government introduced a legislation that all new developments will need to submit a Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) application that complies with the statutory SuDS standards. Without the approval, construction work cannot start.

While this legislation has been introduced in Wales, more and more local authorities outside of Wales are beginning to adopt a similar practice.

Get first-hand insight on how to approach new developments and get your SuDS applications approved

On Tuesday 19th July (1-2pm BST), Dr Netsanet Mebrate, product owner, Causeway Technologies, will be joined by Mark Goodger, principal engineer (Drainage), Caerphilly County Borough Council and Sean Roberts, senior drainage engineer, Ymgynghoriaeth Gwynedd Consultancy (YGC) to share their advice on getting a SuDS application approved.

Goodger is placed to advise from a SAB perspective, while Roberts will offer advice from a consultancy perspective. They will discuss the legislation and common challenges in the application process.

Learn about common sticking points in the process and how to prepare quality applications that get approved quicker and save you redesign costs:

  • An overview of the National SuDS Standards for Wales
  • Lessons the rest of the UK can learn to stay ahead of the curve
  • How the SuDS Approving Body (SAB) enforcement works
  • The process for getting permission from SAB
  • Pre-application advice – including the common challenges during the process
  • Expert tips on how to get SuDS submissions approved quicker
