Changes to new connections charges

Have your say

Ofwat’s new rules for new connections charging comes into force on 01 April 2018 and all companies are being asked to change the way they charge customers for new connections.

We’ve been keen to hear your views, so have recently been consulting with our stakeholders on our proposals. The consultation closed on Monday 23 October 2017.

We had originally intended to publish the outcomes of this consultation in late December. However, following receipt of additional feedback from our stakeholders we have decided to take more time to consider these responses before we finalise our proposals. Therefore, our decision document will now be published in January 2018.

For reference, the consultation document can be found here.

   Retail Market

March 2017

The new Retail Market which opens on 1st April 2017 requires all water connections to Affinity Water Limited’s network to be registered with a retailer. A developer requesting a connection should choose a retailer and inform us of their choice. If they do not then they will be allocated a retailer by the Market Operator after the connection is made.

Within the new retail market Affinity Water Limited are recognised as a Wholesaler, and will carry out any work to complete your water connection.
