The way in which water resources are planned and managed in England and Wales has improved over recent years. We consider that the approach is generally mature and well developed. However, there are areas where planning could be further refined to deliver better outcomes both for water customers and the environment.
This PPS discusses key water resources planning issues and makes proposals for a more integrated and sustainable, open and transparent approach, which encourages public and community involvement and debate.
