As new properties are being built in Paddock Wood, we’re investing almost £4 million in a new sewer to support the expansion of the town.
Why does this work need to be done?
More than 1,200 new properties are planned to be built in Paddock Wood over the next few years and we need to make sure they have access to essential wastewater services.
We originally planned to upgrade the existing sewer network however this would have caused significant disruption, particularly around the town centre.
A new sewer system, comprising a pumping station, new pipelines and modifications to the existing flow conveyance to the wastewater recycling works, will be built to bypass the town ensuring there is no impact on the level of service provided to existing properties.
Construction work will begin in the autumn of 2020 and will continue till autumn 2021. Once underway, we’ll post updates here.
We also plan to host local drop-in events for residents to ask questions – we’re working through how this can be organised in line with current government Covid-19 guidelines and will share details as soon as possible.
