Agenda item

Connected by Water - Assets, Infrastructure and Sewer Management

Presentation by the Director of Street Scene and Regulation and Yorkshire Water



Representatives from Yorkshire Water attended the meeting to provide the Committee with an overview of Yorkshire Water’s Corporate Strategy and business planning, the Connected by Water partnership alliance and the water network’s resilience and renewal.




In response to Members’ questions, officers and the representatives from Yorkshire Water agreed to provide additional information on the sewage discharge into the Meers Brook and contact details for Member’s to use to improve communication with residents regarding work affecting their wards.




Members made a reference to the Transport, Regeneration and Climate Policy Committee requesting that the Committee consider amending planning policy to include Yorkshire Water as a consultee on developments that have a significant impact on the sewer system, such as student accommodation, and that a list of these types of developments be drawn up.
