Water Resources Management Plan

Every five years we produce a Water Resources Management Plan to ensure water is available for our customers and communities.

Our Plan sets out how we will provide a reliable, resilient, efficient and affordable water supply to customers from 2020 to 2080, whilst protecting the environment.

Our Plan addresses the need to balance the availability of water supply with the demand for water from customers. We also continue to strive to help protect the environment and improve the resilience of our water supplies to droughts and other challenges.

As part of our adaptive planning process, we identified a number of strategic solutions that could significantly increase future supply and we have been developing these solutions with other neighbouring water companies.

We are at the first stage in developing these solutions and have set out plans for delivering them, including early conceptual outline designs alongside strategies for engaging stakeholders, gaining planning permission and for procuring and operating the new infrastructure.

  • Statement of Response

    We ran a further consultation on our revised draft plan between 1 March to 26 April 2019 and received over 800 representations on our revised draft plan. We published our Statement of Response to this setting out what customers and stakeholders have told us and how we have taken their views into account. We have also published an addendum to the Statement of Response in response to further information request by The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.
