About Consultation

Berendsen UK Limited  has applied for a retail restricted to self-supply licence with authorisation for water and sewerage.

This document provides notice of the application and sets out Ofwat’s proposal to modify the standard licence conditions that will apply to Berendsen should it be granted a WSSL.

Berendsen is a provider of textile maintenance services in the UK with headquarters in Basingstoke. On 12 July 2018, Berendsen applied for a water supply licence and a sewerage licence, with a retail authorisation limited to self-supply. If granted, this will enable Berendsen to provide retail services to itself and associated persons.

A WSSL limited to self-supply will only be granted to supply premises supplied or served using the water supply or sewerage system of an undertaker whose area is wholly or mainly in England.

Any person who wishes to make representations or objections with respect to the application and our proposal to modify the standard licence conditions should do so in writing to Ofwat at Centre City Tower, 7 Hill Street, Birmingham, B5 4UA or by completing the form below.
