Located 40 miles from Cambridge, Wisbech faces a number of challenges but also has huge potential for growth and development.  Anglian Water's vision has grown from grassroots community work into a proposal for a new garden town with 10,000 homes. The vision will bring better transport links, more jobs and improved health, education and skills training for local people.

By concentrating its efforts in a single town, Anglian Water believes it can make a lasting difference to the people’s lives who live there. This guide sets out Anglian Water’s collaborative approach.

Whilst the knowledge within this guide is specific to Wisbech Cambridgeshire, it is designed to be effective for other UK communities.
