We propose granting a variation of appointment to South East Water Limited as a water company and varying the appointment of Severn Trent Services Limited, (Trading as Severn Trent Connect) as a water company. This notice is a consultation on this proposal under section 8(3) of the Water Industry Act 1991.
On 20 July 2018, a new appointment was granted to Severn Trent Connect to provide water and sewerage services to Aurum Green, Basingstoke (“the Site”). Since the appointment was made, work has commenced and the Site is already partially complete, but will consist of 130 household dwellings when complete.
South East Water Limited (“South East Water”) has now applied for a variation to its appointment to be able to provide water services only to the Site. Site boundary maps can be viewed in section 8 of this document. The Site is within the water and sewerage services area of Severn Trent Connect. South East Water proposes to provide water services to the Site using its existing infrastructure. The Site will be fully built out in July 2020.
