Our plans are designed to provide an extensive Sustainable Urban Drainage system on the new development which also benefits the surrounding area.
The proposed Sustainable Urban Drainage systems allow for surface water drainage and moorland run off to be contained in new ponds within the development areas and in the Countryside Park. This will help reduce the risk from existing runoff causing flooding problems along Gritstone Road, Amberdene Close and Moorfield.
The use of sustainable drainage techniques to control runoff from the development will create soft ponds and swales. These would provide additional habitats for wildlife and also places for the community to enjoy.
