Guidance for sustainability in urban infrastructure

This section of PETUS provides a guide and monitoring facility to encourage action taken towards sustainability in a project, plan or programme. This enables end users to collect together information about a project/plan as it progresses.

End users have identified this as a useful facility to share data and also to record information so that knowledge and experiences are not lost over a projects life time, which can be a number of years with many stakeholders involved.

This facility enables the collation of project details, tools/methods/indicators used, public/stakeholder participation, decision making, communication and outputs at different stages.

Registering and log in
To be able to access information that has been entered into PETUS for your project over time you need to register onto the website. This will enable you to log into PETUS at anytime to access previously entered data. You can also share your username and password with other stakeholders who you wish to see the information that you have entered into the guidance facility.

To register simply:

  • choose a "username" that you will remember,

  • enter your e-mail address so that if you do forget your username and password these can be sent to you,

  • choose a "password" and then re-enter your password. Remember again to choose something that you can remember.

Your username and e-mail address will be confirmed and you can now log in and start using the PETUS guidance facility.

Using the PETUS guidance for sustainability
Click on login and enter your user name and password. You will then be welcomed and the list of projects that you have entered into PETUS will be shown.
