Lake Lothing Third Crossing

Received 21 September 2018
From Anglian Water Services Ltd


Thank for you the opportunity to comment on the Lake Lothing Crossing project. Anglian Water is considered to be a statutory consultee for nationally significant infrastructure projects as identified in the Planning Act 2008 and associated regulations. The following representations are submitted on behalf of Anglian Water as sewerage undertaker for the above site:

Anglian Water is in principle supportive of the above project.

Impact on existing assets: There are existing water recycling infrastructure in Anglian Water’s ownership within the boundary of the above project. These assets are critical to enable us to carry out Anglian Water’s duty as sewerage undertaker. We have had discussions with the applicant regarding the need for diversions of Anglian Water’s existing assets.

Protective provisions: We have previously requested the inclusion of specific wording for the benefit of Anglian Water as part of the Section 42 consultation conducted in 2017. It is noted that specific protective provisions have been included in the current version of the DCO (Schedule 13, Part 6 of the Draft DCO) as requested. Therefore we are supportive of the wording of the Draft DCO as submitted.

Connections to public sewerage networks: Anglian Water is not aware of any requirements made upon them for a foul connection(s) to the public sewerage network for the above project. We understand that a number of surface water connections to the public sewerage network are required for the operational phase of the above project. We have had constructive discussions with the applicant regarding the proposed surface water strategy and are supportive of the strategy in principle subject to confirmation of agreed discharge points being provided.

Should you have any queries relating to this response please let me know.
