2. Proposals for a new reservoir
The proposals for a new reservoir in Havant Thicket, submitted by Portsmouth Water Company, have taken a step closer. They have received Planning permission from the two local authorities concerned – Havant Borough Council and East Hampshire District Council.
The scheme will provide greater resilience for water supplies. It will also relieve pressure for extractions from Hampshire’s chalk streams. It is expected to cost £120 million and take nine years to complete – by 2029. More information is available on the Portsmouth Water Company’s Website
