Services included for all :

Note : These prices are only estimates which may change as we produce a bespoke quote to suit your development site location and your connection requirements. Our costs and timescales for a connection will depend on various factors, including the location of existing water mains and any traffic management needed to carry out the works. 

Our charges shouldn’t be compared directly to other utilities as we are regulated in a different way. 

Gas companies (the network owners) are legally required to provide the first 10 metres of a gas connection free of charge to their customers. This is mandated by the Government.  Unfortunately this is not true for water connections, where our regulator requires that we recover all reasonable costs
