Enhancing water efficiency in Leeds

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.

Also good that @NERCscience funded programmes can deliver useful outcomes globally and locally. twitter.com/YorkshireiCASP…
