Sustainable Drainage System provisions within the Water and Sewerage Services Bill

Synopsis: The Water and Sewerage Services Bill seeks to amend the Water and Sewerage Services (Northern Ireland) Order 2006, primarily in order to extend the period for which the Department for Regional Development (DRD) can pay subsidies to NI Water. This Bill will make a series of other amendments to the 2006 order, including the introduction of measures that are designed to promote the use of sustainable drainage systems. This paper outlines these amendments and provides a detailed discussion on proposals made in respect of SuDS.
