Prince of Wales Close

Our economic regulator, Ofwat, has not allowed us the funding to complete the larger Harton and the Nook flood protection scheme. Ofwat’s determintation on our plan is now being reviewed by the Competition and Markets Authority and therefore we are not in position to commit to the larger scheme at this moment in time. However, working closely with South Tyneside Council and the local community, we have committed to completing localised upgrades to our sewer network to reduce the risk of repeat flooding in the medium term.

Update by Sarah Jayne Vickers

Good afternoon,

we have successfully installed and backfilled the storage tank within the grass verge at Prince of Wales Close. 

We mentioned in our last update, work on West Avenue was slightly delayed, we anticipate further delays partly due to locating an unexpected water main, which needed diverting to allow us to progress with our essential work. On top of this last week we uncovered a gas main which needed some attention from Northern Gas Networks, not to mentioned storm Francis last week. Taking all these factors into consideration, we are anticipating the road closure being extended into the back end of September and hope the road will reopen no later than the 25th September 2020.

We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you, if you need to discuss this please don’t hesitate to contact me via email or alternatively us the 'contact us' link at the top of this page.
