NI Water is ready to welcome all visitors to their stand at the Balmoral show in the Eikon Shopping Village.  The stand is showcasing the Silent Valley 100 year centenary, water for health and highlighting some fantastic career opportunities.  Our team will also be on hand to answer general water queries.

Members of the public will also have the opportunity to chat to our Developer Services colleagues.  The team is on hand to offer advice in relation to development issues and discuss the pre planning process prior to submitting a planning application. Alongside this, NI Water has recently updated the Self Service Portal with improved digital features to help its customers and employees. The Portal provides an enhanced customer experience with added functionality of simple to use and environmentally friendly processes.


Davy McGrath, Head of Developer Services says “The bigger your plans, the more important it is to consult with us as soon as possible. Prior to submitting any planning application, you will need to complete the new pre-planning process. We want to ensure your development process is as simple as possible and reduce any potential issues that may arise.”


Another talking point at the stand will be the calls for input into a new Masterplan for Silent Valley Mountain Park. NI Water is offering the public the opportunity to input into a community engagement project and share their opinions on the future of Silent Valley Mountain Park. Have your say at:
