Southern Water supply issues affecting areas in Rother

We know that some of our residents and businesses in the district, including at Westfield, Brede, Crowhurst, and Sedlescombe have been affected by water supply problems due to a burst pipe in the Hastings and St Leonards area.

Southern Water has completed work on the pipe which is located in woodland. Most areas have had supply resume, however, some areas are expected to see disruption into Tuesday evening (7th May 2024).
