property numbers in Robertsbridge

We're waiting for Chris Stevens to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear South East Water,

1. Please can you tell me the complete number of properties that SEW are required under the WIA 1991 to supply water for the village of Robertsbridge, East Sussex at the current time?

This is the collective whole number of houses which SEW supply and seeks to address the sustainability & actual delivery of water under the WIA 1991.

As there are concerns about water supply due to changing climate patterns and the pressures on areas to accept more housing, I am concerned whether the numbers of new housing for this immediate location shall not cause environmental & supply problems for those already in situ. I understand the WIA 1991 makes a legal requirement to supply such. My question above seeks to determine the actual ability to supply water to the existing and planned housing increases. I understand that Bewl water reservoir is considerably down for this time of year.

Yours faithfully,

Chris Stevens

To cover the work involved in supplying the information which you have requested, a fee will be payable before we can provide you with the information.
