Cone Terrace, Chester Le Street

Northumbrian Water alongside their experienced partner Esh-Stantec is planning to divert a pipe bridge in your area as part of the wider Chester Burn improvement work which is being carried out by Durham County Council.

Update by Anthony Birkett


You may have noticed that work has started on the grassed area off Hopgarth Gardens. We've started setting up our compound area and will be beginning the pipelaying soon.

I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce the team. Managing the site and with control over the day to day activities on site is Lawrence Davies. Mark Nicholson is the Contracts Manager who will oversee the scheme as a whole. Customer Service Manager is Christine Taylor who is responsible for engaging with the community. And finally, I will be working closely with Christine and regularly attending site to help with any issues or concerns that our neighbours may need to address.

If you see any of us around, feel free stop us, we're happy to chat and answer any questions you may have.
