Headcorn Parish council`s Neighbourhood Plan Group needed an independent assessment of their existing village foul water drainage network to evidence and inform their evolving Neighbourhood Plan. Following an initial email and two short telephone calls with principal engineer Ian Ellis, a structured Fee Quote soon followed. The report summary was in plain very understandable English and the colour coded accompanying plan and schedules completed the story. The instructions were completed well within budget and ahead of timescale. At a recent meeting with their water services company, one of our Parish councillors was pleased to say that …”Sanderson`s had completed their report in just over a week – something that the Water Services Company had been unable to achieve in the 27 years since they were privatised!”
