On 26 October 2020 , Ofwat began a consultation on a proposal to vary Icosa Water Services Limited’s (“Icosa Water”) appointment to become the water and sewerage services provider for a development in Severn Trent Water Limited’s (“Severn Trent Water”) water supply and sewerage services area called Whittle Gardens in Innsworth (“the Site”). The consultation ended on 23 November 2020. During the consultation period, we received representations from three organisations, which we considered in making our decision. On 7 December 2020, we granted Icosa Water 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.
