Disruption for Some Lightmoor Village Residents this week

Some residents in Lightmoor Village will have their water supply disrupted, those homes impacted received cards through their doors on Friday from Severn Trent Water. They are working on the water mains for those homes, to improve water supply. This work could result in loss of water supply / low pressure from 8am to 8pm on Monday 24th February.

The second disruption this week commencing 24th February is from Crest Nicholson who dropped letters through the doors of homes impacted. On Monday they will be commencing piling works on site. They are expecting the works to last approximately 4 days. They will be working between the hours of 8am and 5pm and apologise in advance for any inconvenience.

I guess its going to be quite a loud few days for those residents.

Again both of these disruptions the companies have put a letter or a card through residents doors, so if you haven’t received them, have a sigh of relief!
