Date: 21 February 2014 Venue: Online Times: 12:00 - 14:30 (GMT)
This webinar will present the current state of SUDS implementation and maintenance responsibilities in Scotland, and the agenda for taking SUDS forward. The presentation will emphasise the importance of implementing the stormwater treatment train (STT) and source control SUDS specifically, with examples of international best practice. This webinar will be based on the research conducted by Abertay University, in the fields of SUDS implementation, maintenance and long-term management including costs, working with stakeholders to develop policy and best practice.
Alison Duffy will provide an overview of the journey to date which will highlight the original aspirations and the opportunities and barriers which resulted in Scotland being frontrunners in SUDS implementation. She will then look at international best practice, specifically novel source control SUDS which are not commonplace in Scotland.
Neil McLean will present 3 Scottish case studies which illustrate traditional and novel source control SUDS as a vital component of the stormwater treatment train: J4M8, Nitshill Design study and the recently developed Glasgow City Surface Water Management Plan.
This webinar will be of interest to architects, engineers, contractors and those involved in the development of government policy in urban planning and design.
