The future of water services in Colchester - customers being invited to have their say

Anglian Water is launching a public consultation to ask customers about their priorities for the future of water services across the east of England. In the spotlight will be the level of bills; investment priorities to enable growth; spending on environmental protection; and how much should be spent on our equipment above and below ground to drive down leakage and guard against extremes of weather and flooding - and much more.

The outcome will feed directly into the business plan submitted to Ofwat for the period 2015-2020, which in turn will determine the level of future water bills and how much will be invested in infrastructure across the east of England. In the five year period to 2015,

The consultation will be open until 10th March, and we hope that you will take the opportunity to participate.

About the consultation

Anglian Water tells us:

"Through media, advertising, direct mailing, social media, shopping centre exhibitions and an interactive website, we're inviting our customers to discover more about what we do, discuss the issues involved in our work and decide how they think we should invest in the water and wastewater services across the east of England.

We are in touch with business leaders, community and faith groups, youth organisations, charities and many others, and have their enthusiastic commitment to help us by involving their members, clients and networks. Here's a link to the main consultation document, and some resources you may find useful.

As you will see it asks specific questions and invites comment on a number of key issues. Responses may be made on line or in writing, whichever is the most convenient.

Thank you.

Please join us to help shape the future of water and waste water services in your constituency and across the east of England. This is an important opportunity not to be missed and we would be grateful for any help and support you are able to give."
