Overview

Strategic Planning for Water examines the neglected relationship between planning for water and spatial planning. It provides the background to sustainable water management and assistance to spatial planners in understanding the complex water environment.


This extremely topical book examines the challenges of:




  • how to ensure that water supplies are adequate to meet our future needs

  • how to reduce the risk of flooding as we are faced by stormier winters and rises in sea levels

  • how to better manage our waste water

  • how to further improve the water quality of our rivers in response to the Water Framework Directive.


Essential reading for planners, developers and all those who must in future effectively incorporate water issues into their plans, developments and lifestyles if these are to be truly sustainable.
