Private Pumping Stations - Anglian Water -

From Anglian Water:

Currently, homeowners have to spend hundreds of pounds every year for electricity running costs, maintenance and repairs to look after these private pumping stations. They may even have been flooded if it’s broken down in the past.  

From October 2016, many of these private pumping stations will transfer over to Anglian Water and become our responsibility. We will take over all of the maintenance and the running costs too, saving customers hassle, worry and money.

We’d like to ask for your support in letting local residents know about this, and asking them to get in touch with us if they think they have a private pumping station. 

To help customers identify and report the pumping stations easily, we have launched a specialist website:

Heybridge Neighbourhood Plan -

The Parish Council has formed a Neighbourhood Plan Task and Finish Working Group which will oversee the process of producing a Neighbourhood Plan.  Further information can be found on the Neighbourhood Plan page.


Anyone interested in becoming involved with the Neighbourhood Plan or wanting more information should contact the Clerk.



The Hatfield Peverel Allotment Association currently has a small number of plots available on both of

its sites. Because demand from within the village appears to be satisfied at present, we are able to offer

these to non-residents. The plots are a variety of sizes but almost all need a reasonable amount of

work to bring them into use -- ie some have not been worked for the past year (or more in some cases).

The charges to non-residents are the same as to the residents of Hatfield Peverel. We currently charge 

£4 per rod per annum, plus a £6 per annum membership fee which includes insurance and water.  

Most plots are 3 or 4 rods, meaning a total annual cost of around £22.

We would be very pleased to hear from anyone in the Heybridge area who may be interested in taking up a plot.
