Abstract

A SuDS communication and planning tool is proposed to tackle urban diffuse pollution. This planning tool examines SuDS through the ecosystem services and disservices approach in order to illustrate the actual benefits of SuDS to all stakeholders involved in the planning process. The planning tool uses a web based user interface, with clickable links containing specific, detailed information to aid the following tasks: deciding on where to locate a new SuDS development, analysing an existing SuDS system, designing a new SuDS system, and compiling public policy documents. This tool is currently being used in the Irwell River Catchment Plan Pilot to quantify the benefits that may accrue from SuDS installations.
