Water Resources and Efficiency Whilst the County Council welcomes the provision of Policy ENV7: Water Efficiency, it is advised that consideration is also given to water efficiency in commercial properties. Roof areas of commercial buildings are often large in relation to total water consumption and rainwater harvesting systems can provide a very effective and cost beneficial solution to reducing the demands on the public water supply system. Policy ENV7 sets out that development should meet t

Kent has been declared an area of severe water stress by the Environment Agency. As such, CPRE supports the Council's proposal to adopt the lower 'optional' requirement of 110l/p/day for new residential development.

The Draft Local Plan Policy ENV7 also requires development to incorporate design features which will reduce water consumption.

Should the Council wish to introduce measures to restrict water consumption further than the standard restriction of 125 litres of water per person per day to the higher standard under Part G of 110 litres per person per
