Managing water consumption


Blackpool Council

To effectively manage water consumption and achieve cost savings, Blackpool Council has become the first public sector organisation to be granted a water self-supply licence. The council buys water and wastewater service directly from the wholesaler, United Utilities, but is managing its own meter readings, administration and billing for over 120 sites across the borough. As a result, it is estimated that costs savings of up to £194,000 will be achieved over three years and with more efficient water consumption.

The LGA Labour Group exists to fight the corner for Labour councillors at a national level, both within
the cross-party Local Government Association and with the Labour Party at Westminster. The Group provide a strong voice for Labour councillors and act as a platform for ideas and innovation for all those committed to an effective localist element to Labour politics and policies.
