Motion - Water and Sewage Infrastructure Funding

The following motion has been proposed by Councillor Langridge with a seconder to be sought at the meeting:


“This Council invites the Government to change the appropriate legislation relating to the funding of water and sewage infrastructure with the direct objective of speeding up the upgrading of our water and sewage infrastructure that has fallen way below the standards required today and resulted in serious deterioration of the quality of water in our rivers Windrush and Evenlode.


The motion requests that the law be changed so that developers/landowners have to meet, via a S106 agreement or CIL,  the cost of any new or enlarged water main, sewer pipe or surface water pipes and STW (Sewage Treatment Works) upgrade that their development requires to ensure that the additional dwellings effluent can be dealt with without flooding/surcharges, storm event overflows etc from the relevant sewers or STWs.


We ask the Leader of the Council to write to the appropriate Government Minister on behalf of the Council to request this action be taken.


The current state of affairs is generally accepted as a national disgrace even on the admission of the water companies.”
