Homes with metered Lindley water rates will have a meter number listed on their water bills.

Metered Customers in Lindley

The fixed charge is to cover the essential running costs of Yorkshire Water. Whilst the variable charges are for the consumption at your Lindley home.

Unmetered Customers in Lindley

Customers that don't have a water meter at their Lindley home will pay an annual charge for their water consumption. This charge is fixed, meaning you'll pay the same no matter how much water you use at your Lindley home.

Water rates for unmetered customers in Lindley will be based on the rateable value of your home. The rateable value part of your Lindley water prices were determined by the local council in the 90s and will probably not have changed since then.
