PARKING

Please could all residents and their visitors be mindful to not park on pavements. Parking a vehicle on the pavement could lead to an offence of obstruction being committed. This could result in a fixed penalty notice being issued to offending vehicles. It can also cause danger/nuisance for pedestrians and wheelchairs users.

ANGLIAN WATER – PRIVATE PUMPING STATIONS

We may have some good news for those of your parishioners who have a private pumping station on their property, and have not yet registered it with Anglian Water. Currently, homeowners spend hundreds of pounds every year for electricity running costs, maintenance and repairs to look after these private pumping stations. They may even have been flooded if it’s broken down in the past.  As of 1 October 2016, many of these private pumping stations automatically transferred over to Anglian Water and became our responsibility. We have taken over all of the maintenance and the running costs too, saving customers hassle, worry and money. If you have any questions about this campaign, please reply to privatepumpingstations@anglianwater.co.uk.
