Before you buy a site or apply for planning approval we can supply our views on the availability of the public sewer network and any restrictions.
We've now implemented a flat fee structure for our pre-planning sewerage enquiries for each site, charging £180 (including VAT at 20%).
1. An Ordnance Survey plan (scale 1/1250 or 1/2500), with the site clearly marked, together with a cheque payable to "Yorkshire Water Services Limited" for the appropriate amount and a location map or six-figure O.S. grid reference for rural sites.
2. Details of the type of proposed development, likely number of units and anticipated rates of discharge (in litres per second) of foul and surface water.
3. Extra Information such as: high and low points, watershed(s), the general direction(s) of fall, the preferred drainage outfall route(s) and proposed point(s) of access etc.
4. A topographical survey.
We'll aim to respond in writing within two weeks of receipt of payment with our views on the public sewer network, including comments on availability with a complementary extract of the Statutory Sewer Map.
Our comments will be made based on a 'desk top' study, so the more information we have the better informed our response will be.
If you need more help with your query then please take a look at our contact us page.
