People's Plan for Water

The People's Plan for water is a crowdsourced manifesto for what publicly owned water could look like, and what it could achieve. We gathered over 600 ideas and contributions from the public in every region and nation of the UK. 

The results are clear: the public want their water run for people, not profit, they want proper investment in the water system, and they want money spent on cutting bills rather than trickling away to shareholders. 

This is only possible if we bring our water into public ownership. Read the People's Plan in full, and see the detailed contributions by clicking our interactive map below!

Sign the petition: stop sewage by taking back our water

This is a scandal. Every day, the private English water companies are dumping huge amounts of disgusting raw sewage into our rivers and seas. Privatisation has been failing since 1989.

The shareholders receive £1.6 billion a year on average - that money could be invested in water infrastructure to stop sewage. 82% of us support public ownership.

Let's make water companies work for people not profit.

Yes, I believe water should be in public ownership.
