Sewers

Building over or Near to Sewers

If your proposals involve building over or near to public sewers, the agreement of Welsh Water must be sought before work is undertaken. Where a formal agreement and/or CCTV survey are requested, a fee (not part of our charges) is payable to Welsh Water.

Where the erection, extension or underpinning of a building involves building over or within 3 meters of a sewer shown on the map of sewers, a Full Plans Building Regulations Application must be submitted.
 
For further information see Welsh Water Developer Services or contact telephone 0800 9172652.
