Strategic Planning for Water, Hugh Howes, 2008

Strategic Planning for Water, Hugh Howes, 2008
strategic-planning-for-water-hugh-howes-2008
This is a useful reference text  by Hugh Howes, a Chartered Town Planner who was the Strategic Planning policy Advisor on the Water Framework Directive for the Environment Agency when he wrote the book. 
The publisher's blurb says: 
'The 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.' 


It gives some useful case studies (including the Lea Valley before the Olympic Games) and provides an idea of the wide range of issues that planners need to consider when thinking about water planning.
