Answered By: 
The Mayor

My Water Strategy sets out a six-point plan to ensure we use the water we have more wisely. The actions are: improve the water efficiency of existing buildings ; ensure new development is super water efficient; raise public awareness of the benefits of water efficiency; increase the number of homes with a water meter; change the way Londoners pay for their water; and continue to tackle leakage.  

The strategy sets out eleven actions (Actions 3-13) that help to deliver the six-point plan. My officers have been working with the London Water Group (see response to MQ1563), to influence the delivery of current water sector programmes and mapping individual actions in the six-point plan in my Water Strategy against proposed actions in the water company plans.
