29 March 2012, Sutton & East Surrey Water grants 28 day exemption for turf laid by landscapers

In a letter dated the 26th March 2012 to the TGA, Sutton & East Surrey Water has granted an exemption of 28 days to establish newly laid turf, "provided that the customer can provide evidence of the work having been undertaken by a commercial organisation." There is an email address, exemptions@waterplc.com, that has been set up for the installers to inform them.

The exemption does not cover "where a lawn has been turfed or seeded privately".

TGA Chief Executive, Tim Mudge said: "This is an important step in the right direction from a Water Company that listens to the concerns of an important industry."
