The South East is one of the most water-stressed in the UK. In many areas, rainfall per head is less than that in Sudan, or Algeria and with a changing climate, the natural availability of fresh water will become even more scarce. The One Planet vision is centred around a respect for H2O; using water more efficiently in buildings, farming and manufacturing, and managing water to support healthy land-use, avoiding flooding and pollution to watercourses.
This means adopting best practice standards in water conservation, water efficiency recycling and surface water management and making sure all residents have safe, secure and sustainable access to potable water.
