On 18 May 2015, Ofwat began a consultation on a proposal to vary Independent Water Networks’ (IWN) appointment to become the water and sewerage services provider for a development in Southern Water’s water supply area and Thames Water’s sewerage services area called Forgewood in Crawley (“the site”). When fully built, the site will consist of 1,900 household properties. The consultation ended on 15 June 2015. During the consultation period, we received representations from two organisations, which we considered in making our decision. On 5 August 2015, we granted IWN a variation to its existing appointment to enable it to supply water and sewerage services to the site. This notice gives our reasons for making this variation.
