Question: Does the council require a higher level of water efficiency for all new homes?

Question code
3.5
Section
Planning & Land Use
Topic
New Builds - Water Efficiency
Source
Volunteer Research
Question weight
Low

Criteria

Points awarded if the council requires the lower level of water use - stated as 110 litres per person per day - for new homes.

This would be the same as Scottish councils requiring "Silver standard" or "Gold standard" as a minimum for new homes.

Clarifications

The council doesn't have to be defined as in a water stressed area to adopt the 110 litres per person per day standard for new build development but a clear local need should be demonstrated. It should be noted that over half of England is defined as in a water stressed area: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/water-stressed-areas-2021-classification
