The moratorium in Hartismere:

We are currently operating a moratorium, a temporary prohibition of new non-domestic supplies, in our Hartismere water resource zone which includes the town of Eye and surrounding villages. This moratorium has been put in place due to the lack of available water in your area.


We expect the moratorium to remain in place until 2033 when all new supply schemes to support development in this area are operational. In the meantime, we will continue to operate a non-domestic moratorium to protect mains water supplies to existing customers and businesses.

Whether you're extending a property, building a new home, planning a new housing estate or commercial development, we're here to help.
