A new affordable housing scheme has been given the go ahead at the old Summerhill Academy site. As part of the contractors responsibility under the WEWS Act, they are required to design Sustainable Drainage into the scheme. A Swale and Wetland has been proposed at this site, linking into the existing Detention Basin at Stronsay Park. A community consultation on the ground works is to follow shortly, to ensure that the best solution can be sought for managing surface water, whilst bringing benefits to the local area and it's residence. This project is being delivered under the banner of the BEGIN Project.
