9. Rectory Gardens SuDS Rainpark

Themes: Water quality; Getting people and communities engaged


  • Reduce the frequency and severity of pollution
  • Increase surface water management at source

Project description

Polluted road run-off from Priory Road is treated in two seperate SuDS systems in Rectory Gardens

 Surface water flooding occurs when our drainage network is unable to cope with heavy rainfall. The London Borough of Haringey has identifies Rectory Gardens as a potential flood zone. SuDS here will intercept rainwater and raod run-off from Priory Road, Middle Lane and Hornsey High Street and divert it into a rainpark that will slow the water down. This will help to reduce the risk of flash flooding and will slow allow the natural cleaning of the water. This process will help to prevent road run-off pollution entering the River Moselle.
