Regarding the soakaway, much better if you can connect the storm water from gullies to the main storm line if one is available or in to a nearby stream / river.
If a public storm isnít available and soakaway or sump is the only option; you should locate it in an area on site that is suitable, depending on the amount of surface water to be drained and the type of ground, maybe consider a second sump for good measure lined with a membrane and filled with clean stone.
Main storm line is definitely the preferred option if available.
