New appointments and variations

New Appointments and Variations (NAVs) are limited companies that become the new provider of water and/or sewerage services to an area previously served by the existing incumbent water company.

In becoming the new provider NAVs typically receive new connection services from the existing incumbent water company and/or Self Lay provider (SLP) to set up a water supply into the area.

To make an enquiry or apply for a NAV scheme please fill out the application form and provide the information alongside payment of the relevant application fee as described within the form.

If you wish to understand the serve status of a particular site we will require payment of the NAV site status application fee or if you wish to make a full application for a bulk supply offer (where you will receive more detailed information such as the point of connection, related charges etc) we will require payment of the NAV bulk supply application fee.
