Planning for Water - Thought Leadership Club

Flood Risk Management Plans, Water Resource Management Plans and River Basin Management Plans provide a plethora of processes through which organisations plan how to manage water.  But water cannot be managed in isolation from the land and properties it flows across, over and through.  How could or should land use planning help deliver better and more sustainable water systems?

On Tuesday 23 January 2018 a meeting involving a partnership between the Town and Country Planning Association's Raynsford Review of Planning, TWENTY26 and BEGIN will be held to give stakeholders concerned about water management a chance to contribute to the Raynsford Review 2018. This workshop is an opportunity for water sector professionals and activists to contribute to this far reaching review of the UK’s land-use planning system.

The Raynsford Review, instituted by the UK Town and Country Planning Association seeks to identify “how the Government can reform the English planning system to make it fairer, better resourced and capable of producing quality outcomes, while still encouraging the production of new homes”.  Chaired by former labour planning minister Nick Raynsford, the review has been collating evidence since June 2017 with the aim of generating a report to bring to all party conferences in 2018.
