Water bills vow

Have your say

WEARSIDE water customers will see their bills set below the level of inflation for 2015-2020 when plans are finally approved.

And Northumbrian Water says it plans to invest about £900 million in those five years to further improve services.

Heidi Mottram, Northumbrian Water’s chief executive officer, said: “While we appreciate that any increases in the household budget are unwelcome, our plan avoids any change in bills apart from an adjustment below inflation.”
