Question Title

* 10. Section 6: Hierarchy of drainage options
Is the evidence asked for reasonable?

Question Title

* 11. Section 7: Infiltration proposals
This section is intended to allow applicants to base their initial SuDS proposals on a desktop study of ground conditions.

Where ground conditions have not been verified on site nor infiltration testing  completed at the time of the application, do you think it is reasonable to ask applicants to consider a ‘Plan B’ for infiltration proposals (in case on-site testing reveals that infiltration as initially proposed is unfeasible)?

Question Title

* 12. Section 8: Water Quality
Based on your experience, would you be able to complete (if you are the applicant) or assess (if you are a consultee) this section in accordance with CIRIA C753 The SuDS Manual? 

Question Title

* 13. Section 9: Details of your proposed Sustainable Drainage System
This section supports the design of sustainable drainage components in accordance with CIRIA C753 The SuDS Manual (which is regarded as industry best practice guidance).
The revised Sewerage Sector's Design and Construction Guidance (DCG), which is to be implemented on 1 April 2020, developers will be able to offer certain sustainable drainage components that come within the meaning of a sewer for adoption under Section 104 of the Water Industry Act 1991. The DCG refers to CIRIA C753 for the design standard of eligable SuDS components.  

Do you think this section will help to facilitate the design of sustainable drainage systems to recognised industry standards?

Question Title

* 14. Section 9: Details of your proposed Sustainable Drainage System
If you are an applicant, do you currently design sustainable drainage systems in accordance with CIRIA C753 The SuDS Manual?

Question Title

* 15. Section 9: Details of your proposed Sustainable Drainage System
If you work for a Local Authority, does your Local Policy request that sustainable drainage system components should be designed to CIRIA C753 The SuDS manual? 

Question Title

* 16. Section 10: Operation and Maintenance 
Do the options included cover all those that available to an applicant to demonstrate that ALL sustainable drainage components can be maintained for the design life of the development.

Question Title

* 21. Your feedback
We also recognise that a North West SuDS pro-forma would need to be maintained, to take into account any national changes e.g. to National Planning Policy, Standards, Legislation etc.

It is proposed that the current version will be available for download on The Flood Hub. Do you think this is the right approach?

Question Title

* 22. Your feedback
We also recognise that a North West SuDS pro-forma would need to be maintained, to take into account any national changes e.g. to National Planning Policy, Standards, Legislation etc.

Would a maintenance 'lead' or maintenance 'panel' for the North West be useful in updating the pro-forma in relation to national changes?
