First time sewerage
If you live in an area which lacks public mains drainage, you can ask us to consider providing a new sewerage system.
Applications are accepted from parish and district councils or groups of householders and are often a result of the Environment Agency identifying pollution problems.
We will investigate if a scheme is viable and will carry out an economic assessment to compare private options to public solutions. If it is viable, we will confirm when it could proceed.
If a scheme is not viable, we can advise on alternative options.
Before making an application, please have an initial discussion with our regional engineers who deal with first time sewerage enquiries.
