Anglian Water’s business plan will deliver £9 billion of essential investment in the East of England. It was created in consultation with our customers, and it balances ambition and affordability.
It will create over 7,000 jobs and meet the unique challenges facing our fast-growing and climate-stressed region, helping the East of England to thrive and prosper. Importantly, 73% of customers surveyed support our proposals.
By 2030, we will have prepared two new reservoirs for construction, which will supply 625,000 properties across our region, and £476 million will be allocated to support new housing, plus the extension of our strategic pipeline will help ensure the region remains resilient to drought.
We will support all customers at risk of water poverty including an industry-first medical needs discount. We will double our investment in the environment to £4 billion – with £1 billion specifically to tackle storm overflows, and create treatment wetlands the size of 100 football pitches.
By 2030 average bills will rise by just 21p a day and we will have doubled our package of financial support for customers.
There is ongoing discussion with Ofwat as they assess our plan before publishing their draft decision in May/ June 2024. As a result, there have been updates to ANH03 Data tables and ANH37 Price Control Deliverables in November 2023.
