Build Over Surveys: Maybe you are planning on building an extension or undertaking building works over or near to a local authority sewer, at that point you may need to conduct a build over survey to gain permission from your local water supplier so as to carry out the works.
Reason why you should not Delay Your Project.
Do you know that, in October 2011, legislation was enacted that affects new home improvements. Any new home improvements you undertake, like an extension, must have the correct provisions to make sure the work has been improved by your local water board.
Moreso, whenever you are extending property, or conducting building works close to (within 3 metres), or built over a public sewer you will now require permission from the relevant sewage company before you can start your project.
Note that, you will not only need to show consideration for potential pipe damage in your building plans, but also ensure proper passage to the sewers for any future maintenance. After the approval, you can commence construction.
