Merseyside town council applies for self supply licence

Sefton Metropolitan Borough Council in Merseyside has applied for a retail water and sewerage supply licence restricted to self-supply in partnership with Waterscan.

Sefton said the council buildings, schools in its area and local care providers to which it provides support services will form the proposed portfolio of 213 service point identifiers for its licence.

The council said it had determined it could “maximise savings as well as access the services it sought” through self- supply. It said it has partnered with Waterscan to take on the role and responsibilities for the retail functions.
