About Consultation

This notice is a consultation, under section 13 of the Water Industry Act 1991 (“WIA91”), on our proposal to vary the conditions of appointment of Severn Trent Services (Water and Sewerage) Limited (trading as Severn Trent Connect) (“STS”) as a sewerage undertaker. We have STS’ consent to vary its conditions of appointment as a sewerage undertaker.

STS was appointed as a sewerage undertaker on 21 December 2015. On 20 July 2018, STS’ existing appointment as a sewerage undertaker was varied and it was granted a new appointment as a water undertaker.

As a consequence of granting the above new appointment and varying the existing appointment, it will be necessary to vary STS’ conditions of appointment as a sewerage undertaker so that the consolidated licence conditions relating to STS as a water and sewerage undertaker are contained in one Instrument of Appointment.

STS’ original conditions of appointment only referred to its appointment as a sewerage undertaker. Ofwat proposes to vary STS’ conditions of appointment as a sewerage undertaker to consolidate STS’ conditions of appointment as both a water and sewerage undertaker. While there are no substantive changes proposed to STS’ original conditions of appointment as a sewerage undertaker, the above proposed variation to its conditions of appointment will reflect the consolidation of its appointment as both a water and sewerage undertaker.

Any person who wishes to make representations or objections with respect to the application should do so in writing to Chris Daly at Centre City Tower, 7 Hill Street, Birmingham, B5 4UA or by completing the webform below.

Representations must be received by Ofwat no later than 17.00 hours on 27 September 2018.
