The Technical Committee agreed that before the scope could be agreed, a
definition of “Surface Water Management” needed to be
- It was agreed that the committee members should look at everything potentially
up to and including greywater recycling where relevant as not limiting the scope
allows innovative, longer term solutions to be included.
- The committee members agreed that a sensible first step, and deliverable
would be to map out who the relevant players related to surface water
management are. A useful deliverable would be a map with links to the different
players, perhaps those who have guidance, legislation, or are stakeholders in
surface water management / Sustainable Drainage activities (both urban and
rural). The aim would be to produce a useful and digestible report clearly showing
the different perspectives, building on the first deliverable.
- The natural second activity, once all players have been
identified, is to look at the different perspectives each stakeholder has and
their aim/ambition for surface water management. This would enable the committee members to look
at where there are significant differences in outlook and different advantages
and disadvantages perceived.
