Sustainable water management in land use planning (C630)

This book provides guidance on how water-related issues may be considered within the land use planning process. It details the wide range of stakeholders, policies, processes and guidance that exist to foster sustainable water management. Many of the policies, processes and guidance are relatively recent, and as planners become more aware of the issues and they are more fully addressed in local plans, the links between water management and land use planning should improve. Nevertheless, there is still scope for improving sustainable water management through better collaboration between the stakeholders involved.

This book aims to help this process by providing information on sustainable water management and identifying the linkages to planning policy. It also suggests how the stakeholders can work to further sustainable water management within the land use planning process both appropriately and efficiently.

Key words: water quality, urban drainage, water infrastructure, water resources, sewerage, sustainable resource use.
