First Inverness SuDS Conference – SuDS for People and Wildlife
Highland Council graduate research assistant Marcia Rae has been investigating the presence of amphibians in Inverness Sustainable Urban Drainage (SuDS) ponds and the results will be presented at the first ever Inverness SuDS Conference on Friday 27th November. This Conference will be the first of its kind in the Highlands and aims to ensure that urban development is designed for maximum benefit to local residents and wildlife.
This is a free event to attend, including lunch, and is open to anyone with an interest in Urban Drainage, Green Infrastructure, Wildlife or Amphibians. The Conference, which takes place at the Council Headquarters on Glenurquhart Road, will start at 10.00 and finish at 15.30.
The day will include talks from Brian D’Arcy, who will discuss how we can optimise SuDS interest for wildlife and Alison Duffy from Abertay University who will discuss how the multiple benefits that can be gained from SuDS. The afternoon will involve some workshops on how to deliver this best practice on the ground.
Graduate Assistant Marcia Rae said: “This is an opportunity for local residents to learn more about what they can get from SuDS and for those involved in the designing and implementation of SuDS to work together to get the most from these features.”
For more information about the Conference, to book a place, or to find out more about the Inverness SuDS project contact Marcia Rae at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 07753352400.

Want to get involved with political debate on the TV?? This is from Robert Beck of Outline Productions:
'Outline Productions who are developing a new political series for Sky with the working title Us And Them. We’re looking for a team of members of the public who would take turns every few weeks to appear on a panel of around 4 who get to question an equivalent panel of politicians, business leaders and other decision-makers about important issues of the day.
We want to go further than programmes like Question Time, giving the people who take part an opportunity to exchange views with the decision-makers on equal terms. Our intention is for regular people’s opinions and experiences to get more of a hearing but also for the decision-makers to be less able to hide behind evasive answers.
We are not featuring anyone who holds an elected office as one of our “person on the street” side of the panel and so councillors themselves could not appear, but I was hoping you might be able to pass the information about this program on to anyone you think might be interested in taking part in your local area or any groups in your area which could have members interested in taking part. We are looking for anyone with strong opinions about what’s going on in the country and the world today. If they email@example.com or give me a call on 0207 424 7608 I could tell them a bit more.'
