A group of iCASP researchers is helping to make developments in Leeds more sustainable. They’ve been using their expertise to pull together the evidence for a water saving policy.
Planners at Leeds City Council are looking to adopt an enhanced 110 litres a day water efficiency standard for new homes, and need reliable and robust evidence to support the decision and make the case more widely.
Although 110 litres a day is recognised as a sound benchmark, the brief suggests that an even more ambitious target could be achievable.
The advice to Leeds City Council Planners is presented as a Policy Brief which has been well received.
As the brief might be helpful to other councils, it is available to download from the Resources section of the iCASP website.
