We are required by the terms of our Instrument of Appointment and by Ofwat′s statutory guidance to publish a Wholesale Charges Scheme, including indicative prices, for access to our water supply networks. We must review our Access Code, including the indicative prices, at least annually.
Links are given below both to the latest version of our full Access Code and to tables of indicative access prices for wholesale and combined access. These tables are extracted from our Access Code, which also contains important information on the main assumptions we have made in calculating these prices.
We supply water services both in the North East of England, where we trade as Northumbrian Water, and in the South East, where we trade as Essex & Suffolk Water. The indicative prices tables cover both areas.
Case-specific access prices, particularly for combined supplies, may differ from the indicative prices, which are based on standard assumptions that may not apply in particular cases.
We have also included our template bulk supply agreement, which may be applicable for Bulk Supplies to New Appointments and Variations (NAVs).
