Drought Plan Consultation 2021

In summer 2021 we published our draft Drought Plan – which sets out how we plan to meet the challenges of droughts to maintain reliable water supplies ­­– for an eight-week consultation.

We’ve now carefully considered the feedback and published a 'Statement of Response', sharing the responses we received and how we’re taking these on board to improve our plan.

The Statement of Response, revised plan and supporting appendices are available to read and download:

You can also still read a summary of our original draft Drought Plan below and the full technical documents.

The next step is to share our revised Drought Plan with the Government for approval and then publish our final plan, which will be in place for five years.
