Better buildings - designing for water efficiency
This report offers a template for water efficiency in housing developments, as a contribution to the sustainability of the proposed growth under the Sustainable Communities Plan.
The background study consulted key players from the many different groups that have a role in the creation of new communities. The report is based on research interviews with stakeholders in the construction, development, water, planning, academic, government and NGO sectors. Stakeholders were asked for their perceptions of how water efficiency could be included in new build, planning and the development within the Sustainable Communities Plan growth areas. Particular focus went to the opportunities for water efficiency in the development areas, how best practice can be standardised and what policy mechanisms would help achieve this.
