Preshute Primary School in Wiltshire is now an exemplar site showing a range of SuDS
ARK have delivered five objectives through this innovative project:
ARK has led community volunteering days engaging parents, children, and governors from the school, ARK regular volunteers, NatWest employees and the village residents association to help deliver a rain garden and rain wall. They have worked alongside contractors and RHS Gold Medal award winner Wendy Allen to install new eye catching blue downpipes that lead to rain planters, rain chains and a water butt. Extensive planting within the grounds of species able to tolerate different conditions, included a green roof welly store and a raised wildflower area all demonstrate the exciting ways that Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) can be part of the solution to slowing down storm water within the environment particularly where impervious areas dominate.
