With new housing estates in the pipeline, concerns have been raised by residents about the possibility of “overdevelopment” in Reepham, questioning whether the existing infrastructure can even cope with the town’s current population.
Recently, Anglian Water has had to deal with several instances of raw sewage flooding properties in Back Street and nearby homes. However, it took the utility company several days to eventually clean up the detritus in the latest sewage overflow.
