Planning services

We provide informative comments on foul and surface water proposals for major planning applications to the local planning authority for their consideration.

To ensure a sustainable drainage strategy is prepared that mitigates the risk of flooding or pollution downstream and which protects our existing and future customers we may also request the Local Planning Authority includes a foul and/or surface water condition to be attached to the planning permission.

Concerned about growth in your village or town?

If you are a customer concerned about the impact of a proposed development in your area and would like Anglian Water to provide comments on the planning application, please contact us with the Local Authority name and the planning application reference number. Whilst we cannot provide you with site specific information, we will provide comments to the Local Planning Authority.

The comments we provide to the local authority are based on the feasibility of the site connecting with no deterioration. We do not provide comments on historical or current operational issues such as blockages in your area.

Have concerns regarding the water supply or sewerage services in your area? Please call our Water supply and sewerage service call centre on 03457 145 145.
