If it is found that the existing pipe is in poor condition or the material is unlucky, you need to reinstall the length of the tube under the structure at your own expense so that you can consider an extension. This minimizes the risk of structural pipe failure after construction, and the potential for inconvenience and service failure for you in the future. If you want to build one of our public sewers or side exits (usually within 3 meters) or near them, you will need our permission, even if it is located on your property. We must ensure that all our pipes are protected from possible damage that development may cause, so that they can continue to provide the service for which they were developed. It is also very important that we can access our pipes for maintenance and repair. If a developer is working with building control, the inspector checks when a Build Over may be required. If they are satisfied with the proposals and it meets our criteria, they will approve it on our behalf and the developer will not need to contact us for further permission. During and after construction, a building inspection must generally confirm that the work complies with national building standards (outlined in the H4 Building Rules). The developer can choose to use a LabC (Local Authority Building Control) division or an independent licensed inspector for this assessment.
It is highly recommended that you consult a client, architect, drainage engineer or your local building inspection before working or starting work. For more information on building a public sewer, contact us at [email protected] Please note that a diversion of the sewers should be considered whenever possible. We are unlikely to allow you to build through a strategic public evacuation channel. Surface water from hardness must not erode on the motorway, where it could lead to accidents or cause nuisance. For this reason, you must let us know if you plan to expand your home so that we can ensure that your home and our pipes are protected during and after construction. Any inspector who has verified a site on our behalf (either by a local authority or by an independent company) will inform us when inspections have taken place and will also communicate the result to us, for example.B. if construction is allowed. If you want to know more, our detailed instructions are a good start. They will help you identify if and what type of consent you need. You must then submit either a declaration of work form or a request for a formal agreement.
If the proposed Build Over does not meet our criteria or if the inspector has doubts about the proposals, he will escalate it so that we can speak directly to the developer to give advice and agree on the next steps. Sites of rainwater pipes, sanitary pipes and outdoor gutters can indicate where their underground flows are likely to take place. This section has been written for homeowners who might be considering building an extension or making changes. It describes the main effects that drainage can have on your project. If you decide to proceed with your project, your client should consult the approved H document for detailed advice on compliance with the building rules. Flow covers give an indication of the underlying outputs….
