There is no charge for notifications or for granting consent but work cannot start until consent has been given.
Consent will not be withheld unreasonably and may be granted subject to conditions which must be followed.
Under the regulations, if consent is not given within 10 working days it is assumed to have been granted. In these cases the plumber or person receiving consent must still ensure the regulations are met in full.
Please remember to keep a copy of the consent letter as a plumber carrying out the work will need to know if there are any conditions.
Failure to comply with the regulations regarding new installations could mean the water supply is withdrawn.
