Overview Nature of asset base Feeding into regional and local spatial planning Making it happen
Water vs wastewater asset bases Water Interconnected Large scale assets Regional level planning over long timescales Wastewater Numerous distinct systems Organisational complexity Historically more reactive planning More sensitive to location of development
Supporting the spatial planning system Regional considerations Water Statutory water resource plan Twin track approach Evidence base for RSS + subsequent reviews Regional planning policy (c.f. water efficiency) Wastewater More recent consideration Regional “environmental capacity” tool Evidence base for RSS + subsequent reviews Regional planning policy (c.f. WCSs)
Supporting the spatial planning system Local delivery – water cycle studies Water Should support Water Resource Plan not re-write it Consider local asset requirements Evidence for LDF scrutiny Local planning policy (cf water efficiency) Wastewater Infrastructure strategy linked to development plan Consider wider flood management issues Evidence for LDF scrutiny Local planning policy (cf SUDs)
Making it happen Needs strong cross organisational working Regional (c.f. East of England Water Partnership) Local Needs timely consideration Regional (c.f. Regional Planning Advisory Group) Local (integral to LDF process) Needs robust water cycle studies Requires strong technical support Regional policy framework
