This notice is a consultation on our proposal to grant a variation of appointment to SSE Water Limited as a water and sewerage company and make consequential variations to the appointments of Northumbrian Water Limited as a water company and Thames Water Utilities Limited as a sewerage company.
SSE has applied to be the water and sewerage company for a new development of 9,536 households called Barking Riverside Stages 2 – 4 in East London. SSE is already the water and sewerage services company for parts of the site. It was granted a variation to supply the first stage of the Existing Site on 27 June 2011 and was granted a further variation to serve an additional part of the Existing Site on 15 June 2015, which was later re-issued on 20 December 2016 due to problems being raised concerning the border of the Existing Site.
The Site is within the water service area of Northumbrian Water and the sewerage service area of Thames Water. SSE’s application for the Site consists of 9,536 household customers and no non-household customers. SSE has the consent of Barking Riverside Limited to become the water and sewerage services provider. SSE proposes to provide the 9,536 customers with potable water via a bulk supply contract with Northumbrian Water. SSE also proposes to provide foul sewerage services via a bulk discharge agreement with Thames Water. For surface water drainage, the Site will contain a surface water drainage system that will retain all surface water to be dispersed on the site, ensuring that no surface water will drain to Thames Water’s sewerage system.
Any person who wishes to make representations or objections with respect to the application should do so in writing (which includes by email) to Jonathan Eddleston at Centre City Tower, 7 Hill Street, Birmingham, B5 4UA or by email at [email protected]
Representations must be received by Ofwat no later than 17.00 hours on 4 December 2017.
