Yorkshire Water in customer bills pledge
9:36am Tuesday 3rd December 2013 in News
The bills of Yorkshire Water customers are not expected to rise as high as planned in the next financial year.
Following concerns about rising household costs, the company has decided not to push ahead with a price increase planned for 2014-15 and agreed with industry-regulator Ofwat in 2009.
This means that next year the average household bill in Yorkshire will be in line with the current rate of inflation, with the average bill being £373, £6 lower than planned.
The company also published plans to keep bills at this lower level between 2015 and 2020.
Richard Flint, chief executive, said: “Over the last 18 months, we have listened to the views of more than 30,000 customers to help shape where we invest over the next five years, and how that will impact on customer bills.
“The overwhelming message is that they don’t want to see any deterioration in service but that they want us to keep bills as low as possible.”
