unstar this property answer text <p>This is a devolved matter and the information provided therefore relates to England only.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has committed to eliminating all avoidable plastic waste throughout the lifetime of the 25 Year Environment Plan. Our working definition of ‘avoidable plastic waste’ is plastic waste that is technically, economically, and environmentally feasible to reuse or recycle, or, where this does not apply, it is (technically, economically, and environmentally) feasible to replace with alternatives that are reusable or recyclable. It is our intention that there will not be any avoidable plastic waste by 2050.</p><p> </p><p>We will be publishing an evaluation plan and indicator framework for the Resources and Waste Strategy later this year. This will set out further details on how we intend to monitor progress to reduce avoidable waste. This will be a living document where we will publish updates as we develop our methodologies to better capture the data and as new evidence comes to light, particularly with the indicator framework. We are confident that we have set out an ambitious programme of reform which will ensure that we meet our strategic goals.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

This includes prolonging the lives of the materials and goods that we use, and moving away from the traditional ‘linear’ economic model of ‘take, make, use, and throw’.</p><p>For this reason the Government has supported new requirements agreed in the EU for 11 energy related product groups from November 2018 to January 2019.</p><p>The products subject to new requirements include white goods such as household refrigerators, dishwashers and washing machines and washer-dryers. Some of the requirements agreed in these new regulations for white goods related to improving the resource efficiency of the product. They include obligations for manufacturers to design products for ease of dismantling/disassembly and reuse; make spare parts available to repairers and/or end users for ease of repair; provide information on the length of commercial guarantees; provide information as to repair; and provide information as to critical raw material content to facilitate material recovery.</p><p>In the Resources and Waste Strategy for England, we have also committed to drive more sustainable consumption through providing consumers with better information as to the sustainability of their purchasing decisions. This may include requiring consumer information be provided to support the purchase of products that have been designed, produced and packaged to minimise waste, for example by being more repairable, having longer warranties, produced with recycled material, or remanufactured.</p><p> </p>

If demand management actions included in the recent revised draft water company water resource management plans (WRMPs) are taken, demand is estimated to decrease. Based on WRMP data, the Environment Agency estimates there will be reductions of 783 Ml/d in the next ten years and 1073 Ml/d in the next twenty years.</p><p> </p><p>The region with the highest demand is the South East of England. The region with the lowest water demand is the North East of England. This is the case for both the next ten and twenty years.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is working closely with the water regulators and the water industry to ensure future water demand is met sustainably and water supplies remain secure. The Government recognises continued action is required, and it is committed to a ‘twin track approach’ of managing water demand, including leakage reduction, and increasing supply, in parallel.</p><p> </p><p>In the case of large nationally significant infrastructure, the Government’s National Policy Statement for water resources infrastructure, currently undergoing parliamentary scrutiny, will streamline the planning permission process.</p><p> </p>
