Ashton Green, Leicester

Ashton Green is a greenfield site developed with 3000 houses, retail developments, business areas, two schools, sports facilities, a library and public open spaces.

30% of the development is roofed or paved and thick clay soils make infiltration difficult. SuDS components including swales, retention ponds and wetlands were implemented to control runoff on the site.
