Can I build by a well? No, we do not allow internal wells due to the increased risk of internal flooding and olfactory problems, even if double-sealed blankets are used. Wells must be completely removed and driven by wells, must be rebuilt outside your extension, either on the sewer line or offset and connected by a Y crossing. If your application is an internal well, it will be rejected. We won`t know what`s needed until you`ve applied and we`ve seen your plans and the sewers involved Owners are responsible for the water pipes that lie inside their property – they`re called supply pipes. We may need to carry out additional studies for sewers with a diameter greater than 375 mm. This may delay authorization. Learn more about the process. It depends on the size of your sewers. If your channel diameter is no more than 160mm, the app costs you £299 (presumed property). If your channel diameter is higher (which is unlikely for a residential project), you expect slightly higher costs.
Don`t worry, just fill in as many details of the app as possible, even if they are very simple. Your client or architect should be able to help you. It`s best to know where the pipes are when designing the building to avoid delays and additional costs. Don`t worry if you`re not sure how to do it – we`re here to help.
