Water cycle study 2017

Water cycle studies are not a statutory requirement. However, the Environment Agency strongly recommends a water cycle study as being an effective method to make that development and growth is sustainable for the water environment and water infrastructure.

We commissioned the water cycle study with Hart District Council and Surrey Heath Borough Council and it was published in May 2017.
