Ofwat Consultation (2021) Developer Charges and Environmental Incentives
Waterwise responded to an Ofwat consultation on the scope and balance of developer charges and incentives. In our response we support the principle of water companies providing incentives to developers to promote water efficient development beyond the regulatory baseline. We suggest a three tier national scheme that includes 1) use of efficient fittings; 2) water reuse and 3) demand offsetting locally. In combination the three components would encourage water neutral development.
