UWTC's Alison Duffy to speak at first Inverness SuDS Conference - SuDS for People and Wildlife on 27th November 2015
The Inverness SuDS Conference will be the first of its kind in the Highlands and aims to ensure that urban development is designed for maximum benefit to local residents and wildlife.

Highland Council graduate research assistant Marcia Rae has been investigating the presence of amphibians in Inverness Sustainable Urban Drainage (SuDS) ponds and the results will be presented at the first ever Inverness SuDS Conference on Friday 27th November. This Conference will be the first of its kind in the Highlands and aims to ensure that urban development is designed for maximum benefit to local residents and wildlife.

This is a free event to attend, including lunch, and is open to anyone with an interest in Urban Drainage, Green Infrastructure, Wildlife or Amphibians. The Conference, which takes place at the Council Headquarters on Glenurquhart Road, will start at 10.00 and finish at 15.30.

The day will include talks from Brian D’Arcy, who will discuss how we can optimise SuDS interest for wildlife and Alison Duffy from Abertay University who will discuss the multiple benefits that can be gained from SuDS. The afternoon will involve some workshops on how to deliver this best practice on the ground.

Graduate Assistant Marcia Rae said: “This is an opportunity for local residents to learn more about what they can get from SuDS and for those involved in the designing and implementation of SuDS to work together to get the most from these features.”

For more information about the Conference, to book a place, or to find out more about the Inverness SuDS project contact Marcia Rae at marcia.rae@highland.gov.uk or telephone 07753352400.
