As a developer, there will be sites that prove to be more challenging than others and you may need our help to ensure that a suitable drainage network can be designed and constructed to serve the site whilst not hindering or restricting the developable land available. When these situations arise, we are more than happy to discuss the options available to you that may involve the diversion of a critical public asset or the requisition of a new sewer.
We are also able to support developers where diversionary works of our apparatus are required to be undertaken as part of a highway scheme. NRSWA (New Road and Street Works Act 1991) provides a legal framework for street and highway works in the UK and contains a Code of Practice for Diversionary Works.
Our capital scheme team will also support customers looking to assess whether a duty exists to provide first time sewerage to domestic premises.
New Roads and Streetworks Act 1991 (NRSWA) applies where highway, bridge or transport works involve alteration or protection to the undertakers apparatus. The proposals may be submitted by a relative authority or on behalf of.
We will make an assessment under a C3 (Budget Cost) or C4 (Detailed Cost Estimate) stage to determine whether diversion works will be required in the area of such public highway upgrading works. An estimated cost can be provided for the undertaker to carry out the works, which can include an 18% discount where an advance payment is agreed before hand with the undertaker.
Depending on the complexity of your scheme, we aim to provide a response to budget estimates (C3) within 21 working days and detailed estimates (C4) within 25 working days.
