Discussing SUDS in Greener Grangetown with Ian Tetherington

Having attended the opening of Greener Grangetown, Charlotte was also privileged to receive a personalised visit from Ian Tertherington – lead Drainage Engineer of Cardiff City Council.

Ian’s passion and drive for the retro fitting of a SuDs design at Grangetown has resulted in a scheme which has brought multiple tangible benefits to the area. The project which has been internationally recognised, has not only aesthetically improved an area but also contributed by removing almost all of the surface water runoff from combined surface water sewer.

The design which was developed by Arup together with Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water and Natural Resources Wales and extensive consultation with the residents within Grangetown, has improved the cycle network in the area and retained an excellent line of mature trees along the Taff embankment.
