Whitton Village Sewer Diversion

Northumbrian Water is looking to investing £2M to improve the resilience and enhance the performance of the sewer network in Whitton Village Northumberland.

Update by Ian Davison


You may remember that we wrote to you in January to give an update about the work we were planning to undertake in Whitton. We promised to keep you up to date regarding our proposals.

In my previous letter, I mentioned that the issue to be addressed was complex and the scale of the works required was significantly greater than first anticipated. As a result, the works were rescheduled within the capital plan and programmed to commence during the financial year 2019/2020.

The design team have now identified a solution to ensure that our sewer network continues to protect the environment and serve the community effectively. We want to share our new proposals with you to understand your views about this work and how we can minimise any disruption you and your community may experience once the work is underway.

Our proposed work will see 575 metres of new sewer pipe installed within the highway and verge. A new package treatment plant and outfall sewer to the river Coquet will also be provided. We are planning to commence these works in late Spring. A plan is posted on the "Planned Works" tab.

I would like to hear from you if you have any feedback about our proposal, please leave your comments on this update, or get in touch using the ‘Contact us’ button at the top of the page.

I apologise for the delay in the implementation of these works however, I will continue to keep you up to date with our plans for this essential work
