Christmas and New Year Streetworks Embargoes
Leading up to and over the Christmas and New Year period, many local authorities place an embargo on work being done in streets and areas around busy shopping centres and town centres. This means it may not be possible for us to undertake any new connections work. When you are ready for a connection, please contact us so we can check any embargoes in your area and agree an installation date with you. We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes.
New Connections - A new home build, replacing an existing water supply
New Mains - Building a new development
Our Infrastructure Charges are currently set at £354.00.
You have to pay infrastructure charges on top of the cost of connecting a property to the water main and/or wastewater system (provided by Anglian Water or Thames Water depending on your location within our area). Each company can raise infrastructure charges for connecting premises for household purposes to a public water main or to a public sewer for the first time. Ofwat set an upper limit on this charge and this increases each year in line with inflation.
Further information can be found in our Charges Scheme and on the website of our regulator, Ofwat.
