What information does an application need? Obviously, the form contains the basics of the site, the developer and all other parties to the Section 104 agreement, as well as the relevant planning conditions, the number of properties, the initial occupancy date and other standard details. We will review applications for the introduction of new existing sewers or sewers. If we accept your channel, an adoption agreement will have to be reached. Our drainage expertise is also monitored by our flood risk assessment services (see www.floodrisk.co.uk), which ensures that all recommended drainage or flood protection measures are the best rated and devoid of any design and adapt to such developments. Appendix G of the sewer sector guidelines contains the terms of the panel code. The code group (see point 3.8 of the code) is tasked with reviewing proposals to amend the sewer sector guidelines and the agreement on the adoption of remediation models. Another type of sewer is through another section of the Water Management Act, S102. This is a retroactive agreement that can be used to take back existing sewers in which there is no S104 agreement. This is done at the request of the owner and, if the water company is satisfied with the condition of the sewers, the transfer is immediate.
In our research, these are sometimes described as being in the negotiation phase, with the sewers made public immediately after the agreement was signed. With the introduction of the code, we expect the industry to demonstrate its commitment to a good customer experience for its customers, which supports the government`s goal of supporting housing growth and a level playing field for customers who wish to apply for and enter into adoption agreements. The usual course of drainage adoption for a new development is either through the agreement of Section 38 (Highways Act 1980) or by the Agreement Section 104 (Water Industry Act 1991) depending on who will take control of the drainage system. You will see that there may be minor differences in section 104 of the usage requirements depending on the location of your site, so it is worth checking with the sewer service, although, of course, if you use an experienced drainage contractor in this part of the country, they will look after you. A Section 104 adoption contract must be concluded before construction of the canal begins. In addition, a 10% obligation of the estimated cost of construction is required. If your research were to point out that sewers are subject to an adoption agreement, you should be aware that they are not currently owned by the water distribution company and that if things go wrong, it is not the water company that is responsible for the repair. It is also possible that the developer may not be able/unable to repair the sewers or, if they stop the business, the owners may be responsible for the sewers. We would always recommend checking who the developer is, if there are any likely complications, and the likely timing of acceptance. Sanderson Associates provides developers with a comprehensive drainage design service that ranges from small private drainage systems to large wastewater and surface drainage systems for adoption with secondary south systems, so that developments can meet planning conditions for surface water flow requirements and wastewater discharge requirements.
