We received 402 responses to this consultation.
We want to know what you think about our plans to change the current planning system to increase sustainable drainage systems in England.
Sustainable drainage systems slow the rate of surface water run-off and improve infiltration, by mimicking natural drainage in both rural and urban areas. This reduces the risk of “flash-flooding” which occurs when rainwater rapidly flows into the public sewerage and drainage systems.
