Respondent: Thames Water (Savills)

Representation:

As set out above a high quality hydraulic sewer model has been created and we are currently reviewing the sites specified in the Local Plan to assess the whether it is likely that any network reinforcement works will be required to support their delivery. The outputs from this work will feed into the Water Cycle Study being prepared by the Council and we will provide comments on the sites as soon as they are available.

Notwithstanding the above, Thames Water will work with developers and local authorities to ensure that any necessary infrastructure reinforcement is delivered ahead of occupation.

Thames Water will deliver any necessary upgrades required to support growth and these will be funded through the Infrastructure Charge.

In some circumstances Thames Water may seek the inclusion of phasing conditions in order to avoid adverse amenity impacts for existing or future users such as internal and external sewer flooding and pollution of land and water courses. To minimise the likelihood of requiring
such conditions developers are advised to contact Thames Water as early as possible to discuss their development proposals and intended delivery programme. This is important as the potential impacts on the network can be affected by factors including the scale of development, timing of delivery, point of connection and development elsewhere in the catchment.
