The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has commissioned research into whether the Non-Statutory technical Standards (NSTS) for SuDS should be updated. Defra would like everyone who is involved with the process to have their say, so that they can contribute towards multiple benefits including improved climate adaption and better places and spaces.

The NSTS underpins all Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA) guidance, so feedback from this survey and subsequent changes to the technical standards could have an impact on how developments are drained going forward.
