On 1 October 2020, Ofwat began a consultation on a proposal to vary Independent Water Networks Limited's (“Independent Water Networks”) appointment to become the water provider for a development in Yorkshire Water Services Limited’s (“Yorkshire Water”) water supply area called Harland Way in Cottingham, North Humberside (“the site”). The consultation ended on 29 October 2020. During the consultation period, we received representations from three organisations, which we considered in making our decision. On 26 November 2020, we granted Independent Water Networks a variation to its existing appointment to enable it to supply water services to the site. This notice gives our reasons for making this variation.
