Botley sewer network improvements

We're planning a scheme to install a new sewer in Botley to provide mains drainage to new properties and commercial premises being built in the area.


The scheme will invlove the construction of a new sewer and pumping station to serve the development planned on land at Botley Park Golf Course and the adjacent farmland at Boorley Green.

Proposed route

We considered a number of different routes for the new sewer when planning this scheme. The proposed route was chosen as it avoids environmentally sensitive areas and the centre of the village, so will have less impact on the local community.

The new pumping station will be built on land by the existing fourth tee of the Botley Park Golf Course.

Some work will need to be carried out in local roads. Where necessary, we will liaise closely with the Highways Department to put in place a traffic management plan to minimise disruption.

Planning application

We submitted a planning application supported by an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) in spring 2015. Subject to planning permission being granted, it is anticipated that work will begin in late 2015 and will take approximately a year to complete.
