New developments water connections

We will need full details of your site so we can work out what work needs to be done to supply the new properties with water.

For both household and non-household properties we require information about ground conditions so a soil analysis report may also have to be submitted with your application.

Connections with a water demand in excess of one litre per second require a large diameter connection.  If you need this amount of water please complete a large diameter form.
