Their construction work may require a building permit or a building permit from the municipality. Some works are covered by the development rights authorized by the owners or may not require a building permit (things like winter gardens, car ports and vets sometimes fall into this category). Building above or near a sewer pipe could damage the pipe itself or your home. This can lead to higher costs for our customers and serious disruption. Therefore, if there are pipelines on your property, you should consider the position, size and design of your work before you start and contact us before work begins. The flow path should avoid obstacles (for example. B ponds or outbuildings) and keep them away from the foundations, so it has to be longer and have additional access rooms instead of running in a straight line. The approved H document provides guidance on the additional measures required when exits are to be near the foundations. If it is not practical to use infiltration (for example. B for nearby foundations, waterproof or contaminated soil or a high water table), it is preferable to transport them to a stream or, if not, to a surface water channel or, as a last resort, to a combined sewer.
Surface water should not be discharged into a draining sewer or sewer. Our fee covers the cost of your return: – perhaps – – technical assistance – link to building control or your certified inspector — — – issuing your letter of approval or agreement — To avoid an increasing risk of flooding elsewhere, it is best to move it on permeable soil or to do so in permeable material. Permeable materials include both porous materials (z.B in the form of grass or reinforced gravel, porous concrete or porous asphalt) and permeable materials (e.g. B clay bricks or concrete blocks designed for water to pass through joints or cavities). This will not only minimize the impact on the environment, but also avoid the cost of drainage. Normally, we do not allow structures to be built above or near the water line. If you find one, it is important to contact us to discuss next steps on 0800 9172652. We are responsible for the protection and maintenance of sewers on our territory and it is really important that we protect them for all our customers and future generations. Sewers are often within the confines of private property and sometimes close to buildings. Construction work can affect these sewers and it is our responsibility to ensure that they are not damaged and we can continue to access them for future maintenance work; These are our hidden treasures.
