"Most of you will be aware that South West Water will, over the next six months be undertaking works to improve the sewerage system and reduce the amount of sewage that currently enters the river Teign. Whilst this is indisputably a good thing there will be a degree of disruption as the works involve the digging up of Fore Street, New Exeter Street, Old Exeter Street and Woodway Street. The works will be carried out in stages and right of access for vhicles and pedestrians will be maintained. The first phase of the works will commence on 30 January covering Old Exeter Street and Woodway Street.
Some residents have expressed concern regarding how bins will be collected. South west Water have assured us that they are liaising with the District Council to determine the best way to maintain bin collections during the works. Customers will be informed of the arrangements in due course where a change is necessary."
