Clean Water Capacity Enquiry

If you are planning a new development, you’ll need to talk to us in the early stages of planning so that we can avoid delays and provide support and advice on your proposal.

Before construction can begin, most types of development or building work will need planning permission from the local planning authority.

Whilst we are not a statutory consultant for planning applications, we endeavour to review all applications for planning permission that are submitted to local authorities. We do this to ensure that any development does not compromise our assets including water and waste water networks, which ultimately protects the service we supply to our customers.

A capacity check is required to see if the water distribution network has sufficient capacity to service a development. We’ll inform you if there is adequate capacity for your development and if there is any existing equipment on site that could affect your plans.
