Testing and Refining a Policy and Methods Framework for Water Sensitive Urban Design

A research programme in New Zealand, that is facilitating the uptake and implementation of low impact urban design policies and practices, has developed principles as a foundation for policy development in local government statutory and non-statutory plans and guidelines. Each principle is related to practical implementation methods many of which use sustainable technologies that need to be tested for their feasibility, practicality and effectiveness.
