Wessex Water is applying to the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs for consent under section 38 of the Commons Act 2006 to carry out restricted works on Breach Common and St. James Common. The Planning Inspectorate will decide the application on behalf of the Secretary of State.

The proposed works are to install a new flow meter below ground online on an existing sewer rising main. The works will involve the construction of a new flow meter chamber, sluice valve and data logger. The surface fittings required for the proposed works are as follows: 1 No. flow meter frame and cover (1200mm x 675mm); 1 No. SV frame and cover (380mm x 230mm); and 1 No. Cello Logger frame and cover (210mm x 210mm). All surface fittings will be flush with the existing ground level. Temporary ‘heras’ fencing will surround the works during construction, creating a total working area of 190.8m2. The works will be fenced off for health & safety and site security purposes and the excavation will be covered when not in use. The total duration of works is 10 days.

A copy of the application form and accompanying documents may be obtained by writing to Brian Sheppey, Wessex Water, The Operations Centre, Claverton Down, Bath, BA2 7WW or emailing [email protected]. The application form and documents will be available until 9th January 2022.

Any representations should, where possible, be sent by email ON or BEFORE that date to [email protected]

Representations sent to The Planning Inspectorate cannot be treated as confidential. They will be copied to the applicant and possibly to other interested parties. To find out more about how the Planning Inspectorate uses and manages personal data, please go to the privacy notice.
