Planning for Water: A Major Challenge for the Government's new Sustainable Communities

Thursday, 21st October, 2004.
One Birdcage Walk, London. SW1H 9JJ

The Sustainable Communities Plan, launched by the Deputy Prime Minister in February, 2003, calls for 200,000 new homes to be provided by 2016, with most of these in growth areas identified in Milton Keynes/South Midlands, London-Stansted-Cambridge, Ashford and the Thames Gateway. Of course, to do this throws up immense challenges, not least in planning for water, the subject of this one-day conference.

Mike Johnson, Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, Chris Birks, Environment Agency, Peter Spillett, Thames Water, Ray Farrow, House Builders Federation and Chris Shirley-Smith, Water Works UK Ltd will be amongst the speakers addressing the delegates at the high profile conference, Planning for Water on Thursday, 21st October, 2004 at One Birdcage Walk, London. The conference will be chaired by Professor David Butler of Imperial College.

Delegates representing the UK regulators, water resources managers and operators, local authorities (particularly land use planners and developers), environmental organisations and academics with an interest in water resources and policy should attend.
