Update from the group:

Blueprint continues to engage with water companies around the Blueprint for PR19 campaign, as well as Government agencies and the industry regulator, Ofwat, to ensure that new business plans deliver for people and nature.

Over the next 12 months, water companies in England and Wales will be drawing up their business plans for 2020 to 2025, as part of the ‘Price Review 2019’ (PR19). The business plans will play a pivotal role in the stewardship of the environment. A large part of the campaign involves working with Government and regulators to ensure that companies are provided the opportunities to deliver for the environment.

This month the Group has met with a number of stakeholders, including natural England, Environment Agency, Defra and water companies working on water resources in the South East.

Additionally, members are responding to two significant consultations on a National Policy Statement for Water Resources, and the National Infrastructure Assessment from the national Infrastructure Commission.
