About Consultation

This document invites comments on the proposals of the Water Services Regulation Authority (Ofwat) to modify Condition B: Charges in the Instruments of Appointment (licences) of the 16 largest appointed water companies1 in England and Wales, collectively referred to as ‘water companies’ or ‘companies’ in this document.

The proposed modifications would allow us to delay to January 2025 our final determinations of price controls for the 2025-30 period if it is necessary due to unforeseen circumstances.

We are able to modify the conditions of the licence of a water company whose area is wholly or mainly in England under section 12A of the Water Industry Act 1991 (WIA91) subject to the procedural requirements set out in that Act. This document is a Notice under section 12A of the WIA91 in relation to Affinity Water Limited, Anglian Water Services Limited, Northumbrian Water Limited, Portsmouth Water Limited, Severn Trent Water Limited, South East Water
Limited, South Staffordshire Water plc, Southern Water Services Limited, South West Water Limited, Sutton and East Surrey Water plc, Thames Water Utilities Limited, United Utilities Water Limited, Wessex Water Services Limited and Yorkshire Water Services Limited.

We are able to modify the conditions of the licence of a water company whose area is wholly or mainly in Wales under section 13 of the WIA91 if it agrees to the changes that we are proposing to make. This document is a Notice under section 13 of the WIA91 in relation to Dŵr Cymru Cyfyngedig and Hafren Dyfrdwy Cyfyngedig.
