Question 12: Do you have any other comments about Making an Application?

Representation ID: 523

Respondent: Anglian Water Services Ltd

Representation Summary:

Contributions from developers towards foul sewerage network improvements (where required) will be sought under the Water Indusrty Act 1991.

Reference is made to infrastructure providers including Anglian Water potentially identifying a need for planning obligations as part of their responses to planning applications.

We would not expect there to be provision within a Section 106 Agreement or CIL for used water (foul) infrastructure. In general, water recycling centre (previously referred to as sewage or wastewater treatment works) upgrades to provide for residential growth are wholly funded by Anglian Water through our Asset Management Plan.

Foul network improvements (on-site and off-site) are generally funded/part funded through developer contribution via the relevant sections of the Water Industry Act 1991. The cost and extent of the required network improvement are investigated and determined when we are approached by a developer and an appraisal is carried out. There are a number of payment options available to developers. Options include deducting the revenue that will be raised from the newly connected dwellings (through the household wastewater charges) over a period of twelve years off the capital cost of the network upgrades. The
developer then pays the outstanding sum directly to Anglian Water.
