Countryside is committed to reduce the amount of water used in our operations. We monitor our water use on an annual basis and also the amount of water we dispose of.
Our main use is on our sites where water is used for welfare facilities, for keeping site free of dust and for mixing materials and cleaning.
We have inspection regimes on site to prevent water wastage through taps being left running or through defective equipment, fittings or leaks.
Within our properties we install low-flow fittings and our show homes have details of energy and water saving actions that customers can take when they occupy our homes.
We also install Sustainable Drainage Schemes (SUDS) on our developments where necessary. In 2017 82 per cent of our sites contained SUDS.
