Update on the Thames Water Hosepipe ban

August 22, 2022

Thames Water has announced a hosepipe ban will come into force across London from Wednesday 24 August 2022 until further notice.

This announcement follows a research discovery of reservoirs dropping to their lowest levels for 30 years. Thames Water ‘temporary use ban’ (TUB) would be brought in to help mitigate a significant drop in reservoir levels.

Please see the following statement from Brent Cross Town

Although the hosepipe ban is only for our homes and does not cover public areas, we are doing what we can to conserve water at Brent Cross Town.

We will not be watering the grass at the Exploratory Park or Claremont Park until the hosepipe ban has been lifted. The water play pumps in Claremont Park will also be turned off during this period.

We do need to continue to water recently planted trees and plants until they are established, but this will be done with the utmost consideration and only use as much water as needed.

We will only use the jet spray on footpaths and paving when there are health and safety reasons to do so, such as helping to prevent slips and falls.
