Consultations

Help us create a Best Value regional plan

We want your feedback on how we’re proposing to create a regional resilience plan that will deliver ‘Best Value’.

Please see our consultation document, which is available in the Documents section of this page and contains a number of questions to help us gather your views. You can also complete our feedback survey by clicking here. The consultation closes on Friday 5 March 2021.

To date, water resource programmes have been developed with an objective to keep bills as low as possible. However, it’s now recognised that it’s vital to also consider the additional value that they could deliver to people and places.

This could result in a plan being chosen that isn’t necessarily the cheapest, but is one which delivers much wider benefits to society.

Our ambition is to deliver a multi-sector regional resilience plan that provides additional value in the areas that matter most to the people of the region.

So, we’ve developed a set of criteria and metrics that we propose to use to assess the extra value resulting from the different water resource options we identify.

We recently held two consultation webinars, which were attended by more than 75 stakeholders. You can view the recordings from both sessions, via the links below, to hear from the WRSE team about our approach to Best Value planning, as well as what questions and comments attendees had. The presentation slides used during the webinars can be found in the Documents section of this page.

Remember, you can also contact us directly via contact@wrse.org.uk.
