Building over sewers
You may not be able to see them, but our sewer pipes will need to be kept in mind when you're building over them or near to them. Building works can often affect our sewers, and in turn could affect the service we provide to you. That's why you need our permission before you start building so we can help protect them for future generations.
It's our job to maintain the sewers in our area and keep them safe for you and future generations. It's a job that is always top of our priority. Without our advice and permission for building, your home could be harmed by our sewers, causing flooding and even collapse. It can also make selling your home trickier than you think. By keeping us in the loop and going through the right application channels won't only protect the sewers, it'll keep your home safe too.
