Update by Gabrielle Ward

Good Afternoon,

Following on from Nick's previous update and introduction, I thought I would pop on and introduce you to our Mott MacDonald Bentley (MMB) team.

My name is Gaby Ward, I am the Customer Liaison Officer for MMB working along side with Nick Warner from Northumbrian Water. We will be conducting the engagement with our customers and posting regular updates on here. Please feel free to leave us a comment below should you have any questions or even if you just wanted to say hello, we will be more than happy to help.

Our Contracts Manager, Damien Woods, will be overseeing the project. Then we have Gavin Smith, our Site Agent, and John Cummings, Works Manager. Gavin and John will manage the day to day operations on site. Also working on site are the Engineers, Dan Weston and Scott Povey.

As Nick mentioned previously, we will be starting on site from Monday 27th September, so if you do see any of our site team please feel free to say hello!

I have attached a plan to this post which gives you a better idea of the access routes we will be using to and from the site compound. The plan also includes the proposed sewer line and pumping station location.

I'd like to thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation while our essential works are carried out.

The Project Team and I are looking forward to working within your community.
