Future water requirements for the South East

We have updated our Future Water Resource Requirements for the South East document, providing a revised picture of the region's water resource needs in the decades ahead.

This new document is available via the Library section of this page - it sets out a summary of the planning challenge we face in our area and highlights where we are expecting changes to the forecasts we published a year ago and how we have taken account of what stakeholders told us during our previous consultation.

We will soon publish our fully updated forecasts, which will be addressed through our regional plan, in line with the requirements for new Water Resource Management Plans (WRMP24).

This will include assessments for growth and climate change and the expected amount of additional water needed to protect and enhance the environment and achieve increased resilience to drought. We will also set out the range of future planning scenarios that will be addressed through our adaptive regional plan.

The forecasts cover both public water supply (water provided by water companies to household and non-household customers) and non-public water supplies (the water used by other sectors who have their own sources of water).
