Downham Boulevard SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage System)

All around Ravenswood there are green areas that act as SUDS.
Rainwater/surface water is collected here rather than going into Anglian Water’s drains. 
Every household on Ravenswood should receive an annual rebate of £25 from Anglian Water because of this unique eco-system. 
If you’re not receiving this please contact Anglian Water.  SUDS areas are maintained by the Council to support local wildlife.

Unfortunately, some people abuse these areas and they become unsightly, as is the case on the SUDS area separating Downham Boulevard from the school which is being eroded by cyclists riding down the centre.  Together with the Council we’re looking at ways to ‘design-out’ this problem and ensure that cyclists use the intended cycle paths.
