On 14 September 2020, Ofwat began a consultation on a proposal to vary Independent Water Networks Limited’s (“Independent Water Networks”) appointment in order to become the water services provider for a development in Yorkshire Water Services Limited’s (“Yorkshire Water”) water services area called City Fields, Wakefield, West Yorkshire (“the Site”). The consultation ended on 12 October 2020. During the consultation period, we received representations from one organisation, which we considered in making our decision. On 15 October 2020, we granted Independent Water Networks a variation to its existing appointments to enable it to supply water services to the Site. This notice gives our reasons for making this variation.
