WRMP19 - Methods – Population, Household Property and Occupancy Forecasting

<< previous page 
Price: £35  

Household demand typically accounts for about half of the water put into supply by UK water companies. Reliable and robust projections of household population, properties and occupancy are therefore essential for water resources planning. This project has reviewed appropriate methods for forecasting population, household properties and occupancy. This included extensive stakeholder engagement with water companies, regulators, government and a sample of local authorities. Approaches used in other sectors were also examined.

Recommended methods have been provided that enable flexibility of approach and which are supported by industry regulators and government. A Guidance Manual has been produced to provide practical guidance to water companies on how to carry out population, household property and occupancy forecasting. A Worked Example provides a practical example of how to follow the guidance and undertake the calculations. Finally, a Supplementary Report sets out information and technical detail to support development of the new methodology.

The full report, Supplementary Report and Worked Example can be ordered in printed format as usual, or downloaded free of charge here:
