Find out why we need to know that you are considering a construction above or near a canal We cannot give permission until consultation and agreement are made by Anglian Water. We advise you on request if a canal is close to your property. The other possibility is that the seller will provide the buyer with compensation insurance to protect against financial losses resulting from the construction of the property through a public sewer. It is the fastest and cheapest option, but whether or not insurance is available depends on the circumstances of each case. Before requesting overflight or proximity to a canal: a construction agreement gives the water company the assurance that the work to be carried out will not negatively affect the underlying sewers and also ensures that the water company still has sufficient access to the canal for it to be repaired and maintained. If you plan to build nearby or via a public sewer, you should contact the water company before carrying out the work to determine its needs. Before carrying out construction work nearby or via sewers and sewers, you should contact your construction management team. Sometimes problems arise when owners try to sell their property, which is built in part or entirely through a public channel. Conservatories and extensions are the usual criminals. If a Build Over Agreement was not obtained when the work was done, then the water company has the legal right to enter the land to reach the canal, even if that means demolishing the building above the canal. However, if possible, the water company will avoid the damage and look for other ways to enter the sewers, but the risk remains. If a construction agreement has been reached, the water company has no right to remove or demolish the structure above the sewers. In some situations, specific basic agreements must be reached to protect sewers and sewers, as well as the building or extension itself, from the effects of colonization.

The approved document relating to part H4 of the building code makes it clear that extensions should not be constructed by a well, inspection chamber or other access to a canal that serves more than one piece of land. During the construction of any construction, you must ensure that there are no public sewers in the area of the planned work. If no construction agreement has been reached, the vendor should have a sewer line review and the records forward to the water company. If the water company is satisfied that the sewers are in good condition, they will give a consolation letter confirming that the sewers are in satisfactory condition. The comfort letter generally satisfies the buyer and its mortgage lender that the Water Company will not take any action to demolish the insulting structure over the public sewers. If the existing tube is discovered in a bad condition or the material is the fiber of bad luck, then you must reposition the length of the tube under the structure at your own expense for a construction to be considered. This minimizes the risk of structural plumbing failure after construction and the potential for inconvenience and service losses for you in the future.
Any extension built above or near a canal or effluent on the official channel map must meet the requirements of the H4 requirement from Calendar 1 to the building code.
