Information and updates from HARP:

21st May 2021 – Haweswater Aqueduct Resilience Programme (HARP) – updated plans for Ribble Valley and Lancaster.

The Haweswater Aqueduct supplies fresh drinking water to people in Cumbria, Lancashire and Greater Manchester. To ensure that we can secure the quality and resilience of these water supplies, vital work is required to replace six sections of the pipeline amounting to one of the biggest infrastructure projects in the North of England.

We have been busy consulting with local authorities, councillors, communities and their representatives about our plans as part of our pre-application consultation, including physical exhibitions and an online virtual exhibition, engaging with over 12,500 people and receiving over 2000 feedback responses. We would like to say a big thank to everyone who took part!

Taking into consideration the feedback we have received as much as possible, we have now developed our latest proposed plans for the Bowland and Marl Hill sections which you can view by visiting the updated section of our virtual exhibition at www.harpconsultation.co.uk.

We are also running a live webinar on Thursday 3 June at 6pm, where members of our team will be talking through our latest plans and the virtual exhibition updates. If you would like to join this event you can register by visiting the virtual exhibition home page and following the online instructions.  

We will be submitting planning applications for these latest plans to Ribble Valley Borough Council and Lancaster City Council later in June 2021.

Best wishes,
