PROJECT SUMMARY

The aim of the project was to deliver a broad understanding to Government on private home owner perceptions, attitudes and behaviour towards adopting water related retrofitting measures in their properties. The project complemented recent research carried out by DECC/CLG, “Big Energy Shift”, that explored householder attitudes to proposed heat and energy saving retrofit policies. Outputs from the project were assessed by Defra in terms of policy opportunities, across water quality, flood risk management and water supply, with view to encouraging home owners to uptake water related retrofitting activities.
