The Water Industry Act 1991 (as amended by the Water Act 2014) allows us to set rules about the charges that developers and other customers pay water companies for new connections and other infrastructure services.
Within this legislative framework this document is a consultation on options for setting rules for new connection services for water companies whose areas are wholly or mainly in Wales.
We have produced a draft impact assessment on these options which we include as an annex to this consultation document. This assessment aims to highlight and, where possible, quantify the impacts that we anticipate as a result of introducing the options that we consider.
We welcome your responses to this consultation by 24 January 2019. Please email your response to [email protected]. You can also submit your response by post to: Charging, Ofwat, Centre City Tower, 7 Hill Street, Birmingham B5 4UA.
