Creating biodiverse SUDS schemes
The seminar will highlight the benefits wildflowers bring to Sustainable Drainage Systems, as well as the wider benefits they bring to any development project. It will investigate how they deliver multifunctional improvements to SuDs schemes, stabilise soil and deliver biodiversity for the benefit of wildlife, people and regulatory requirements. A number of Case Studies will outline practical solutions for the above. The session will give an understanding of why wildflowers must be considered for any SuDs project.
