In July 2009, Albion pioneered an innovative solution for sewerage services at Knowle Village near Fareham in Hampshire.
Working in partnership with the developer Berkeley Homes, water industry regulators and local residents, Albion secured an inset appointment to provide sewerage services to the village which not only set prices below that of the local monopoly provider, but maximised the use of existing assets, minimised the carbon footprint and enhanced the site’s bio-diversity.
The Knowle model is now tried and tested and offers a practical way forward for domestic or commercial developers seeking a sustainable solution which avoids a high capex, high carbon connection to local water, sewerage flood management infrastructure.
