  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report because these assets come under the liability of Anglian Water. Usually, we would report these under S81 of the New Road and Streetworks Act. They have already been marked for repair by the statutory undertaker and therefore we will not be reporting the covers to them. Thank you for reporting this matter.
