About the project
For the first time, we are working with whole communities to identify and tackle a number of shared environmental and social priorities, which will also help us work towards achieving the outcomes that form our strategic direction.
We’ve chosen Chippenham and Bridport as the first two communities to pilot this project. The aim is to help these communities transform their approach to saving water and valuing their local green and blue environment.
In these two areas, we have set up local advisory groups which have helped us to agree shared priorities and co-design projects. And we have already started funding a range of projects through the Wessex Water Foundation.
If this new way of supporting communities is successful, we will expand the project to target additional communities across the region and help deliver our outcomes for 2025-30 and beyond.
