Sewer requisition

Banner image

If you have a new development site with no access to a public sewer because land owned by a 3rd party is in the way, we can lay a sewer(s) to serve your site.

We’ll agree land entry, easements and compensation for crossing the land.

Sewers can normally only be requisitioned for domestic purposes, either to serve a new development or as a 1st time service to existing properties. The requisitioned sewer would be built by us as a public sewer (serving more than one property) or as a lateral drain (serving only one property)

To requisition the sewer, the developer must have been granted full planning permission for the proposed development.

You’ll need to read our guidance notes, complete our Application for sewer requisition or diversion form and send payment as detailed in our guidance.
