Planning for Water – Benefits and Challenges of the SAB in Wales: Eva Linnell & Thomas Reay Atkins

Since January 2019, local authorities in Wales have become the SuDS Approval Body (SAB). All construction work over 100m2 with drainage implications must now include sustainable drainage. This means it could even apply to creating a small parking area! This SAB approval is separate to planning, and any snags can seriously impact a project programme and cost.

This presentation will review the background and intended impact of the Welsh legislation. It will cover what is required from developers, the opportunities sustainable water management provides, and offer practical advice on planning new development with specific education building examples.

Playing the Planning Game: Gareth Hooper, DPP Planning

Securing planning approval for education projects is perceived as low risk…who wouldn’t support a new school/university building, however, if the planning application process is not managed correctly, programmes, budgets and outcomes can often suffer.

The presentation will provide a pragmatic guide to managing the planning process for education projects to secure positive and timely outcomes, minimising risk whilst maximising flexibility and deliverability. It will draw on specific examples of how the principles outlined in the presentation have been successfully applied and provide a summary of ways in which these principles can be applied to other education projects.
