Bristol Water seeks planning permission for Cheddar reservoir

Bristol Water expects to submit a planning application tomorrow to Sedgemoor District Council for its proposed £100M project to build a second reservoir in Cheddar, Somerset. The reservoir, which is planned to be built near the existing one, is needed to meet future demand for water.

A decision on the planning application is expected next spring.

The company has also produced a flythrough of the new reservoir, illustrating how it will look when complete.

Bristol Water said the proposed reservoir offers the most cost-effective solution that is deliverable in terms of environmental and geological considerations. The company revised its plans for the reservoir following a second public consultation in late summer. The changes included moving the site slightly south-east following concerns it was too close to the existing reservoir.
