There may be good news coming if you have a private pumping station on your property.
Currently, homeowners have to spend hundreds of pounds every year for electricity running costs, maintenance and repairs to look after these private pumping stations. They may even have been flooded if it’s broken down in the past.
From October 2016, many of these private pumping stations will transfer over to Anglian Water and become our responsibility. We will take over all of the maintenance and the running costs too, saving customers hassle, worry and money.
We’d like to ask for your support in letting local residents know about this, and asking them to get in touch with us if they think they have a private pumping station.
To help customers identify and report the pumping stations easily, we have launched a specialist website: www.spotapumpingstation.co.uk.
We have also produced some posters, which you can download here, that can be published in your parish magazines and newsletters, or placed on your parish noticeboards.
If you have any questions about this campaign, please reply to privatepumpingstations@
Thank you in advance for your support.

Summertime is about here and in the burglary team we have seen a slight increase in shed/garage burglaries across the district.
There have not been signficant numbers of offences but it is clear that the current trend is for offenders to target gardening equipment and power tools stored in outbuildings/sheds or garages.
If you have valuable items stored in such places in your home, please consider the following crime prevention tips:-
- Make your items unique – Mark up your valuable items with your name or postcode using permanent markers or etch into the metal/plastic.
- Make sure you know serial numbers – Photograph/record serial numbers of those items of high value.These things can make it easier for police to trace if sold second hand so we can easily and without doubt prove the items are yours if stolen.
- Make your items difficult to steal – added security on doors, windows, security lights in rear gardens, alarms, highly valuable items stored within secure cabinets or chained to a fixed point on the ground.
