Q Can the current infrastructure for water and sewage cope with the proposed new housing?

A As of 23rd March 2017 by ASD Halesworth Engineers

Anglian Water has confirmed that Potable Water can be supplied to serve the 1,800 new homes and as sociated developments, with only local offsite reinforcements necessary that will be undertaken as part of the development, with no new strategic mains being required.

With regard to the foul sewer network for the 1800 new dwellings and associated developments, it is proposed that there is a direct connection with new pipes to the treatment works.

Capacity at the Water Recycling Centre (or Sewage Treatment Works) has been confirmed by Anglian Water as being available to serve the early phases of the proposed development now, and that they have planned for the growth to enable working closely with the developers to ensure that timely improvements are made in order to accommodate all of the proposed growth.


Q: To quote from your FAQ’s, “The removal of through traffic will make the village centre more attractive and more accessible to local residents”.

In what way does possibly closing the village toilets make the centre more accessible for anybody? Residents, passing motorists, cyclists and walkers, bus drivers and trades men/women all use this facility.

If councillors are so worried about obesity, see Sexton’s Wheel, August 2017, why take this facility from people who are already trying to help themselves healthwise, especially when £2 million can be found to upgrade the leisure centre for those lucky enough to have the money to use it?

With all the extra council tax revenue about to fill the councils coffers surely a guarantee of the toilet blocks future as a free service would give peace of mind to many in the village!

All the new development will be served by a totally new system directly linked to the treatment works.
