Urban planning has adopted liveability as its new catch phrase, and is seeking to create an urban landscape where residents get to enjoy green open spaces, trees that keep the concrete jungle cool, and water systems that are resilient to drought and disruptions. For the water industry this has meant a shift in the way services are delivered, from an approach that has traditionally aimed to avoid the bad impacts of nature and humans to one where the services provided add more value, designing water systems that are sensitive to the urban needs or urban sensitive water design. New pathways for cost-effective revenue generation should be explored, as they provide multiple benefits to customers and could cross-subsidize the creation of liveability benefits.
