I hope you are all well and apologies for not being in touch for a little while
I can now confirm that the pumping station concept has been further developed and approval has been secured to progress into the design and construction stage.
We are now working towards beginning construction in Spring 2020. The works will include a new sewer from Whitton to the proposed pumping station, a rising main (pumped sewer) up Whitton Bank, along Caterside Road discharging into a new gravity sewer constructed in Silverton Lane. The sewer will connect into the drainage network which serves the recently constructed housing development, before eventually draining to Rothbury sewage treatment works. I have posted a plan on the Planned worked tab entitle Schematic (November 2019).
We aim to hold a customer information drop in event later in the New Year and I will contact you about this in advance of the event taking place. I will continue to keep you up to date with our plans for this work.
