Water company submits five-year business plan

A WATER firm has submitted its five-year plan to its regulator.

Southern Water has come up with a plan for 2020-2025 after speaking to 42,000 customers, stakeholders and experts.

Now it has sent in its plans to Ofwat.

Chief Executive Officer Ian McAulay said: ‘This plan is about meeting all our customers’ expectations and delivering long term outcomes for the region.

‘We’ve consulted directly with more than 42,000 customers, stakeholders and experts to co – create an ambitious, deliverable and affordable plan.

‘Our vision is to deliver a resilient water future for the south east and we will do this through a combination of becoming brilliant at the basics and delivering 5 transformational programmes.’

Mr McAulay added: ‘This plan builds on our success with transformational programmes.

‘Target 100 is a great example; we’re aiming to reduce average consumption to 100 litres per person per day by 2040. This will mean we can safe guard water for future generations in an area that is already classed as water stressed.’
