CCWater welcomes Government plans to explore water competition for households

CCWater welcomes today’s Government announcement that it wants to look into the benefits of providing competition for retail water services to household customers in England.

Tony Smith, CCWater’s Chief Executive, said: “In research we did some years ago the majority of household customers supported the principle of competition in water and sewerage services. However, when Ofwat conducts its cost-benefits review it will need to look carefully into the reasons why a sizeable minority of household customers, at that time, were less enthusiastic, and how this might be overcome.

“CCWater will work to make sure that customers’ views, as well as the cost-benefits case, shape the Government’s decision on whether it will give household customers a choice of water and sewerage provider.”
