Meanwhile at Mum's end of the house we fit the wall units in the kitchen to gain floor space and prevent them being damaged.
Anglian Water update.
The Managing Director (MD) of Anglian Water has written to me accepting that they had given me incorrect information. He arranged for an engineer to call to assess my requirements - he came on 10th Jan . He said a new pipe will have to be thrust-bored under the road and a new water meter will be installed on my side of the road - where the MD says it should have been in the first place. The engineer said I would have to pay for this whereas the MD had intimated in his letter that they would pay. Before signing the application to have this done therefore (which included the acceptance of all charges!)I faxed the MD (on 17th Jan) requesting clarification of who will pay. No response as of 24th Jan.
Water Regulations. I have finally got a copy of the water regulations and passed them to my plumber to check that we have complied.
