The minutes of the last town council meeting (6.6.18) record that County councillor Clatworthy reported to the town council that he had:
Attended a meeting with South West Water in connection to local sewerage. Hoped the works would commence in September and the upsizing of the sewer in Exeter Road would start in October subject in both cases to internal processes. The traffic would be controlled in Secmaton Lane by Stop Boards, and in Exeter Road by 3-way traffic lights. The strategic sewer was planned for 2025 but no funding was currently in place; an application would be made to Ofwat in September
The sewer should have been in place before the new builds were approved by the planning dep't.
They say it was planned for 2025, but how many new houses will be using that 6 inch pipe by 2025.
In my opinion, a greedy company like many others putting profit above customer satisfaction. God forbid if they charged milk prices for the water they supply and the crap we send them back. I'm sure they would if they could.
