Keeping Scotland Flowing

Scottish Water is keeping Scotland flowing, playing its part to ensure the delivery of desperately needed new homes and help support economic growth across the country.

From today (Wednesday 1st July) Scottish Water will help to enable developments by easing the upfront cash flow of developers' charges for connection.

This will ease the financial burden on developers of starting up sites across Scotland, which is often the expensive phase, before any income can be generated from house sales.

With around 18,000 new homes connected in 2008/09, Scottish Water is committed to helping Scotland grow and is keen to continue to lead and support development and economic growth in thses challenging times.

Stewart Stevenson, Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Climate Change is welcoming the role played by Scottish Water:

"Scottish Water has continued to deliver for developers in recent years, creating new capacity in its assets across Scotland. This welcome move is helping developer's cash flows and building on our efforts to supprt house-building and protect jobs during these challenging economic times.

"This announcement signals a significant step change in how Scottish Water and the development industry are workign together in partnership to help shape the economy of Scotland."

That's a feeling reiterated by Scottish Water Chair Ronnie Mercer:

"We are pleased to be able to make this positive change. New homes and new customers are alos good for Scottish Water.

"We are working with communities, developers and local authorities the length and breadth of Scotland to meet their needs and deliver tangible benfits through investment in clearer, fresher drinking water projects and initiatives which help protect our natural environment and deliver the additional capacity which allows communities to prosper and grow."
