People on the Fylde coast have been told they are set to benefit after the announcement that around £200m is being reinvested across the North West by United Utilities.

The money, saved through efficiencies in the company’s capital programme, is being reinvested in improving the region’s water and wastewater services, a spokesman for the firm said.

The company says it will invest the money in improving its infrastructure to make it more environmentally friendly, as well as benefit its customers.

Steve Mogford, chief executive officer of United Utilities, said: “We haven’t yet allocated all the money and I’m keen that these funds are targeted in the right places to make a difference to our customers and the environment.

“We have been working closely with the Consumer Council for Water and will continue to work with both them and the Environment Agency over the next two years.”

United Utilities serves a total of seven million customers across the North West of England.
