Building and Developing

Why do I need to provide my contractor details?

The following applies to direct connections to the sewer network only.

There are risks associated to working on a public sewer and as part of the application process we have to check your contractor is aware of those risks and the work will be carried out safely whilst minimising the risk to those on site, to the public and to the integrity of the sewer network.

Your contractor should have a Health and Safety policy which we will check before approving any connection. If they have submitted this to us within the last 12 months then they don't need to do this again. If not then please provide this with your application.

You are also required to submit a site specific risk assessment and method statement.
