Severn Trent to hold drop-in session to discuss water improvements in Buxton

Tuesday 20th March 2018

Severn Trent is inviting locals to a drop-in session in Buxton to hear all about its £7 million investment in new water pipes for the area.

The company wants to meet with locals who live around the Sherwood Road area to give them an update on the project.

John Springett, programme engineer from Severn Trent, said:  “We’re investing a lot of money in Buxton to make sure we can improve the reliability of the water supply for local people.

“Due to the weather in Buxton, the poor ground conditions have made it really hard for the project to progress as quickly as we’d like so we’ve had to reassess our approach and we want to share this with local residents and explain how we’ll be going forward with the project.”

The team will be at Buxton Community Church, London Road, Buxton, SK17 9NX on Wednesday 28th March between 3pm and 6.15pm where they’ll be happy to answer any questions, and advise of how they’ll be working from now.

The company wants to meet with locals who live on Sherwood Road, Heath Grove, Forest Avenue, Welbeck Avenue, Derwent Road, Aldwark Road and Oaklea, as these areas may be affected by the work.

Severn Trent contract partners, Amey, will be carrying out the work on behalf of the company.

“We’re hoping to see as many people there from the Sherwood Road area so we can talk about the work, as well as answer any concerns or questions people may have,” said John.

When all the work in Buxton is completed, the area will be able to benefit from 30 miles of new water pipes.
