About the Masterplan
The Blue-Green Master Plan involves establishing sustainable drainage solutions (SuDS) across Hull and the East Riding.
SuDS help to manage rainfall in order to reduce the risk of flooding, pollution and to enhance biodiversity. Designed to behave like natural drainage, they manage water runoff and help slow the flow from hard surfaces.
In Hull and the East Riding, several SuDS projects are being planned to help manage the area’s flood risk.
As part of the Blue-Green Masterplan, we've awarded Stantec a contract to progress a sustainable approach to water management in Hull and East Riding.
Stantec’s global experts will help us develop exciting new ways of managing water and support regeneration of the region.
A key element of the project is to work with residents to understand the views and aspirations of people living in Hull and the East Riding. Economic growth and social prosperity will also be an important objective of the plan.
