Counters Creek Sustainable Urban Drainage Schemes, Working With Thames Water

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


This report seeks cabinet approval to implement the Counters Creek Flood Alleviation Scheme on various roads in the Borough, and approval to spend the estimated cost of the works.

An funding agreement with Thames Water will be signed to fund the full cost of the works. This is in line with the council’s commitment to being ruthlessly financially efficient due to the cost being footed by a developer rather than the council’s purse.


To approve the cost and implementation of seven new highway Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) schemes in the borough, working with Thames Water Utilities Limited (TWUL) as part of the Counters Creek Project (£3.6 million for construction, fully funded by TWUL).
