2015/16 Wholesale Charges Scheme

Bournemouth Water’s powers to charge for water supplies are contained in the Water Industry Acts. Charges are set in accordance with revenue control limits determined by Ofwat. To comply with Condition E of our licence to operate, charges must not show undue preference to, or discriminate against, any class of person.

Under the terms laid down by Section 143 of the Water Industry Act 1991 and Ofwat’s 2014 Price Review, incumbent regional monopoly water supply wholesalers are required to publish separate charges for the wholesale and retail activities of their business.

The publication on the link below describes our wholesale charging policy and the charges, and is only applicable to retailers of water. Our retail charging policy and charges for end-users (customers of Bournemouth Water’s incumbent retailer) are described in our publication Water Charges 2015-2016, which is available here or on request.

Wholesale charges will be published on our website annually, normally early in February each year. Prices will take effect on 1st of April each year. 

For details of the company’s policies on escrow accounts please contact our Finance Director on 01202 590059.
