Appointment Holder Requirements

Waiting for an internal review by Office of Water Services of their handling of this request.

Dear Office of Water Services,

I require the following information:

1) Is it a requirement of a water company/appointment holders license, issued by Ofwat, that the appointment holder must retain sufficient rights with which to serve the function of its appointment when disposing of land/property which it is reliant upon in order to continue to serve the function of its appointment?

2) Is an appointment holder permitted to dispose of land as a "Surplus Asset" when it is reliant upon the land in order to continue to serve the function of its appointment?

3) is an appointment holder permitted to use the Water Industry Act 1991 as a means of circumventing easement agreements that it has entered into but not longer wishes to abide by/is unable to abide by OR is would the use of the act in this manner be prohibited?

Yours faithfully,
SM

Dear Office of Water Services,

Further to my FOI request for information. I note that you are directing me to the internet to find my answer however, it is a specific set of questions which relate directly to your regulatory role and the licenses that you have issued.

Is OFWAT unwilling to provide me with a direct answer?

Kind regards,
SM
