1. Standards information

    1. We may re-charge you for the water you use at your trading or storage space. Charges are calculated using the same rate charged by our utility supplier, to which we add an administration fee. Your usage may be calculated: 
      1. through a sub-meter fitted at your trading or storage space for which we take regular meter readings, and recharge via invoice, or 
      2. via a weekly or daily rate at our outdoor markets, and maybe recharged as part of the weekly / daily occupancy charges. 
    2. The surface water drainage charge is applied by the water supplier for processing the rainwater and sewerage which flows from commercial properties into the underground drainage system. This is linked to business rates, therefore, where you are directly responsible for the business rates on the space you occupy at the market, and these do not form part of your occupancy charges, you are also responsible for paying the surface water drainage charge. You must remain with the Council’s water supplier, currently Wave, and not try to change supplier.  
    3. Do not use or tamper with any of the landlord's water facilities and equipment, including water meters.
