Having looked at the site from an ordinary watercourse, surface water and ground water flooding point of view we have the following comments:

Drainage Category 2 - The site could be drained by sustainable drainage, however there are constraints and these need to be considered in the design

Reason – Upstream highways issues and surface flow routes – infiltration/soakaway test required and consider whether infiltration can be used as a SuDS technique alongside water storage (in ponds/chambers) and re-use
