Water firm wants customers’ opinions ahead of price rises

ANGLIAN Water is inviting all of its customers to have their say on how the company spends their money.

It is launching a seven-week consultation to see where bill payers think its priorities should lie. Next year the company’s regulator, Ofwat, will decide how much Anglian is allowed to raise from bills until the end of the decade.

Peter Simpson, Anglian Water’s managing director, said: “What our customers tell us really will influence our investment plans and the size of customers’ bills over the next five years.

“We face a huge range of challenges, not just as a water company but as a region.

“We are on the frontline in the fight against climate change, with some of the driest and lowest lying parts of the UK. Our region’s population is growing fast while the amount of water available remains the same and may even decline.”

The consultation runs until March 10 at www.discover
