Severn Trent is set to reveal its £12.9 billion investment plans which they say will benefit Worcestershire communities.

This announcement will take place at a roadshow in Worcester Guildhall on Monday, November 13.

At the event, the public will learn details about the proposals and will be offered free winter wellbeing packs, complete with home winter-proofing advice and guides on managing living costs.

70,000 of the water company's customers played a role in shaping these plans, which hope to deliver 7,000 new regional jobs and a £550 million financial support package for customers.

Specifically for Worcestershire, the plans involve over £100 million dedicated to initiatives like flood protection, water quality enhancement, and overflow improvement.

By 2030, an estimated 29,000 county residents will have benefited from these financial support schemes and a further 40,000 will be registered for priority services, offering extra help to the vulnerable.

The company also plans to reach carbon neutral emissions by 2030 by investing in six of its Worcestershire sites and delivering projects under the Water Industry National Environment Programme.

Steph Cawley, customer operations director, encourages customers and the public to engage with company staff at the Guildhall event to learn more about the plans.

She said: "We’re continuing to make huge investments across Worcestershire to provide our customers with the best service that can be relied upon whilst ensuring a sustainable future including healthy rivers, thousands of new jobs, less leaks and a water supply to deal with the impact of climate change and population growth."

Attendees can also look forward to receiving free children's books with a fun, educational twist on water-related subjects.

There will also be information on Severn Trent’s Community Fund, which since 2020, has donated over £400,000 to 17 local projects, including the Old Needleworks Foundation, Wildgoose Rural Training, and Droitwich First Responders.

Submitted to regulatory body Ofwat and to be confirmed by April 2024, these plans are set to guarantee secure water supplies for future generations, prevent storm overflow damage to rivers, and perpetuate the company's position as a leading service provider in the sector.

The roadshow opens from 9.30am and closes at 3pm.
