Northumbrian Water and Southeast Water - states minimum 7 metres static head at property boundary.

Ofwat - Customers are entitled to a payment if the company fails to maintain minimum water pressure. This is defined as pressure falling below seven metres static head in the communication pipe.

So it looks like 7 metres - 0.7bar, static head is the minimum requirement.
