Anglian Water is in the process of building a new sewer pumping station and a 1,460m sewer main to serve the 460-house development at Westhill Farm.

The new sewer is being laid from the development site along Westway, West Furlong, Westhill Drive, Gipsy Lane, Bowhill and across Northampton Road to connect with an existing sewer near Lake Avenue.
