How this will affect River Oughton
If granted planning permission for the new building, Affinity Water will restart water abstraction under its existing licence.
Not only will this provide a sustainable source of drinking water to relieve pressure on supply to the local community, but it will also ensure that the river levels in the River Oughton are actively maintained. This means the wildlife and habitats that so many enjoy along its banks will also be protected and at less risk to natural events that could reduce flows into the river.
