The £50 reduction

Banner image

We’re delighted to confirm that the Government contribution of £50 reduction on household bills will be applied until 2020.

The reduction is aimed to address the unfairness of 3% of the nation’s population in our region supporting the £2 billion Clean Sweep clean-up of a third of the country’s bathing waters.

The £50 on your bill

The reduction applies to billed, household customers within our service area. It’s a £50 reduction and not linked to how much water you use.

The reduction will be deducted from your bills and show as ‘Government Contribution’

If your bill is £50 or more in a full charging year, the reduction will show as £50.

If you are on a meter, the reduction will be calculated on a daily basis at the rate of 13.7p per day and applied to all bills during the year.

Therefore, annual bills will show the full £50 reduction and part year bills will show an apportioned discount based on the number of days the bill covers.

If your bill is less than £50 a year, you’ll receive a reduction up the amount you pay.
