What is the SuDS Adoption Policy?

This policy explains the circumstances in which we will adopt SuDS. We have no duty to do so and the policy therefore sets out the exceptional circumstances where we can offer adoption, subject to agreement between the developer and us.

The Policy looks for SuDS to be designed in a holistic way so that the drainage does not need to be split between various adopters. Please contact us if you wish to discuss this further.

We will adopt the SuDS after one year if the developer has built the SuDS according to the approved drawings and maintained them very well.
