About Us

Regulatory performance

Every year we publish information about our performance. which can be found on our full library which has information on current and historic documents.

We are now in our fifth and final year of our business plan for 2015-20. We made 45 performance commitments in our original business plan.  In addition, on 1 July 2018, following the
change in our boundary to align with the English – Welsh boundary, we acquired 11 performance commitments relating to our customers in Chester.  Our Annual Performance Report sets out how well we’ve performed against our commitments during the year. This year it also includes our Board’s Risk and compliance statement and Assurance summary.


In addition, we also publish statutory accounting information for Severn Trent Water in our Annual Report and Accounts:

We want to make sure that our customers and stakeholders can rely on the information in our Annual Performance Report and other information we publish. We have reviewed our assurance processes in Hafren Dyfrdwy and aligned these to the robust processes which are applied across the Severn Trent Group.

Our statement of risks, strengths and weaknesses sets out the main areas of risk we identified to the information we publish. We developed and assurance plan - first draft for consultation, and then final - to address them. Our assurance summary sets out the main findings from our assurance this year.
