In order to promote environmental sustainability and climate action as integral elements of urban projects, there is increasing recognition of the need to mitigate the negative environmental impacts of urban rainwater runoff, as required under the EU Water Framework Directive.
In order to deal with these environmental risks, the Department of Housing Local Government and Heritage and Department of Transport and the NTA are promoting the use of a naturebased approach to the management of urban rainwater runoff, or a “naturebased SuDS” approach, as an integral part of the design of all future urban projects. This nature-based approach brings multiple benefits, in addition to dealing with environmental pollution.
These include climate adaptation, better place-making and wellbeing & increased biodiversity.
