Anglian Water Phase 3 Consultation

Anglian Water’s Phase 3 Consultation

This is the final consultation before Anglian Water submits its Development Consent Order application to the Planning Inspectorate.   The  Phase 3 Consultation began on 24th February and ends 27th April 2022.

All residents now have the chance to comment.  Anglian Water is required to give proper consideration to all responses and it must send a summary of these responses to the Planning Inspectorate.

Everything Save Honey Hill does is aimed at derailing the application to relocate the plant to Green Belt at Honey Hill.  However, this consultation is all about mitigation and provides residents with an opportunity to communicate their preferences to Anglian Water around traffic and access, odour, design, carbon cost, light and noise pollution etc.   If the application is agreed, what we say now could lessen the effects of the relocation on our communities.

Anglian Water has said it will run some face to face meetings.  Here are the details of its planned events:

  • Wed 9th March – Online – 19:00 – 20:30
  • Tues 15th March – Main Hall, Milton Community Centre – 14:30 – 18:30
  • Wed 16th March – Fen Ditton Village Hall – 11:00 – 15:00
  • Fri 18th March – Main Hall, Quy Village Hall – 11:00 – 15:00
  • Sat 19th March – Tillage Hall, Waterbeach – 11:00 – 15:00
  • Tues 22nd March – Horningsea Village Hall – 15:00 – 19:00

You will soon be receiving a leaflet from the Save Honey Hill Group suggesting what we consider to be the important issues.  These suggestions are also available  here.

You should already have received Anglian Water’s Phase 3 Consultation brochure and feedback form (alternatively you can complete the form online). They will contact 10,600 properties so there is a good opportunity to make our voices heard.

Next steps
