Water resources - March update

From: News From Affinity Water []
Sent: 19 March 2018 16:04
Subject: Water resources - March update




Water resources update

19 March 2018



Dear Councillor

Ground water recovers but risk of restrictions remain


January and February may have seemed wet, but rainfall has been below average in our central supply area. However, we have started to see some recovery in our groundwater sources.


Due to this recovery, we will not need to implement restrictions as we come into the spring. However, this does not remove the possibility that restrictions will have to be introduced later on in the year. This will be dependent on the rainfall we receive in March as well as demand through the summer.


Rainfall and groundwater diagram



While we continue to undertake significant investment in infrastructure and drive down leakage in our network, we also need our customers to change how they view, and use water to help manage the situation, and as a key stakeholder you also have an important role to play.



We continue to work with Environmental Charity, Hubbub to raise awareness of water resources and persuade people to change behaviour to save water through an innovative campaign - #TapChat.


To make this year’s Water Saving Week (19 – 23 March) the biggest and best yet, Hubbub have teamed up with Waterwise to promote #TapChat via a social media ‘Thunderclap’.


During the week, Hubbub will be posting daily tips and competitions, so follow @hubbubuk and #TapChat and encourage your followers to do the same.


Draft Water Resources Management Plan


We have recently published our Draft Water Resources Management Plan, which describes how much water is going to be needed by our customers and how we will meet this need in the years ahead between 2020 and 2080.


Our plan considers both current and future customers’ demand for water and looks at the amount of water that is available, whilst considering the impact of factors such as climate change and drought.


With a rising population and some of the highest water use in the country, we are addressing the challenges of serving customers in an area the Government has designated as being under serious water stress.


Our public consultation is open to customers and stakeholders from 19 March to the 23 May 2018.


For more information and to have your say, please read the attached document or visit


We need your support to help make the longer term changes that will have a big impact for the future of water supplies.


There are simple steps that every one of us can take – whether a householder, business, community or a council.


We need a public debate about how we all use water. As a key stakeholder, we would like to invite you to meet with us at your convenience to discuss how we can plan for the future, to take the next step on this journey together. Please contact for more information or to arrange a meeting.


  • Help spread the message to the communities you serve: Every little step we can all make will collectively have a big impact on water usage.
  • Turning off the tap off while we brush our teeth can save 6,500 litres of water a year.
  • Avoid baths - take a short shower instead to save on average around 50 litres each time.

Bin collections update

Waste collection notifications banner

We have four additional crews out today working to clear the backlog of bins that were missed last week due to the weather conditions. They will try to get to as many of the affected areas as possible.

Please note – if we are unable to reach you today, we will unfortunately not be able to collect your black bin until your next scheduled black bin collection day. For these properties only, crews will be taking additional bagged side waste on the next scheduled black bin collection day.

We thank residents for their patience, and apologise for any inconvenience caused.


There is a variety of information available on our website to help you with waste collections and recycling.

Garden Waste Skip Important information



Radwinter Parish Council

Herkstead Green Bungalow Cornish Hall End

Braintree Essex CM7 4HH

Tele 01440 731964  07766112536


Garden Waste Skip Important information

Radwinter Parish Council has unfortunately had to cancel the Garden Skip Collection for 2018/19. Hempstead Parish Council have withdrawn their contribution which means it is now too expensive for the Parish Council to fund alone.

Uttlesford District Council do offer an alternative: the garden waste collection service is a subscription-based kerbside garden waste collection that runs from April to March with a short break over the festive period.

This service is for Uttlesford residents only and will cost £40 for 2018/19.


New customers will be required to pay £20 for a new Garden Waste bin.


To register for the service residents can call the Customer Service Centre on 01799 510510 from the 26th February this will then ensure that bins can be delivered in time to start the service in April.




Broadband in Radwinter?

It is probably worth looking at the BT broadband availability checker for your address/phone number as there seems to be some (unverified) progress.

Banner - Local Plan

Additional work on Local Plan evidence base

LP figures

Uttlesford District Council is taking the time to fully evaluate the responses to the Local Plan consultation held over the summer. Almost 6,000 written comments were made by over 2,000 individuals and organisations. All the comments are available to view on the online portal.

Further work is now being carried out to address some of the issues raised, on subjects such as the water cycle, archaeology, heritage, employment, and transport and sports facilities. The additional work is necessary to ensure that the next version of the Local Plan is ready to be consulted upon.

As a result of this additional work, the council will make a decision on the next version of the Plan in late spring 2018 before a further round of public consultation takes place.

Find out about the Draft Local Plan ►

PPWG meeting date and agenda

The next meeting of the Planning Policy Working Group is on Thursday 14 December, starting at 6pm in the Council Chamber at the UDC Offices in Saffron Walden. 

The cross-party group will consider the complete set of responses to the latest consultation and way forward for the Local Plan. The agenda is available here.

The meeting will be broadcast live, or you can listen to a recording at

Residents urged to put forward their views on plan for garden community

LP WoBThere is still plenty of time for residents to have their say on plans for a garden community on the Uttlesford-Braintree border.

The West of Braintree Garden Community: Issues and Options document has been prepared by Braintree  and Uttlesford district councils.

The document provides further information about the proposed West of Braintree Garden Community, and sets out some of the key issues that will need to be included in a more detailed masterplan for the development.

The public consultation on the document closes on 22 January 2018.
