What are infrastructure charges and why do I have to pay them?

Infrastructure charges

Infrastructure charges are a one off charge, charged by all water companies for first time connections. Each new connection that adds a demand to our water and sewerage network will incur these costs. These charges ensure the upkeep and maintenance of our network.

If there has been a previous supply to the site which will not be retained then infrastructure charges may not apply. The infrastructure charges/credits will be assessed at the time of the quote.

Please see our developer charges 2017/18 (PDF) for more information.
