Proprietary and vegetative combination employed for supermarket's surface water run off

Leicester City Council has worked collaboratively with Asda, ISG and ACO Water Management to achieve a first in sustainable urban drainage within a supermarket development. The solution is integrated drainage that combines proprietary and vegetative systems to achieve effective surface water management, whilst introducing a level of biodiversity never attained before on a retail development. Working to strict planning guidelines that required two swale inlets to be incorporated onto the site, the solution moved away from a the more common permeable paving to achieve a cost effective, near to surface solution that required minimal ground works. As a result, stormwater is successfully managed on or near the surface, in an area that would have typically been highly impermeable.
