Report: The Eight Principles of Local Water Security

The White Paper “Water for Life”is a ambitious paper that attempts to deal with competition in the water industry, over-extraction, tariffs and pollution.

The LGiU believes that the government’s policy should also reflect the central role of local communities not just as consumers but as stewards of the UK’s precious natural resources.

In The Eight Principles of Local Water Security the LGiU argues that giving local communities a greater say in how water is managed will help the government achieve the aims of the white paper.

In this publication, the LGiU has identified the elements that underpin local water security to help councils, communities and national government ensure the sustainable utilisation of this precious resource.
