Planning Obligation - A Guide to Section 106 and Developer Contributions

Representation ID: 319

Received: 07/01/2010

Respondent: Environment Agency

Representation Summary:

We feel that a bit more emphasis could be placed on water efficiency in this section as it is included in the Sustainable Communities Criteria in the following section. The Essex Thames Gateway Water Cycle Study Scoping Report also mentions the importance of water efficiency in ensuring adequate potable water supplies to the region into the future. We are keen to support high levels of water efficiency in both new and existing development and Planning Obligations might represent a viable mechanism to pursue opportunities to improve water efficiency in the Borough.
