The London Borough of Camden has had two major flood events in 1975 and 2002 that caused disruption to business and transportation. The Council is concerned that such flood events will become more common in the future as climate change brings more intense storms with increasing frequency to U.K. The project goal was to determine a strategy to mainstream Sustainable urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) into the public realm work of the Highway and Transport Strategy Teams. We conducted desk-based research, interviews, and site visits to identify the actual and perceived benefits and barriers to the adoption of SuDS and potential strategies to promote their adoption in the borough’s public highways.
