Unlike other legal provisions such as Section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (TCPA 1990), we have not been able to find a specific legal provision under which construction contracts are entered into. However, construction contracts are regularly required by sanitation companies to ensure that the following legal requirements are met: If you plan to build above or near a public channel, you need written consent from your wastewater manager, you should consult the company during the first phase of planning your work. If you want to build sewers, you need a construction agreement. This is necessary if you plan to build a building, extension, support construction or similar work nearby or directly on an existing canal. The distance from the applicable sewer depends on several factors, including the depth of the sewers, as the sewers are critical, etc. although it is usually 3m. The H4 requirement requires that some construction work be carried out on a public sewer, or carried out on land or in a manner that could interfere with use, or hinder access to all public sewers, are carried out in a manner that is not harmful to the building or the expansion of the building or the continuation of the maintenance of the sewer, sewer or main disposal Da Thames Water is legally responsible for the maintenance of these sewers and sewers , construction by agreements are available to ensure that these elements have been taken into account in the design of your proposed foundations. First – whether the building or the expansion or the work to support it – the insurance policy will cover the cost of repairing property damage or renovation work, where the remediation company exercises powers to access the canal and causes property damage, or cover the costs of diversion of sewers. This option will be the quickest and cheapest option and will avoid notifying the sewer contractor to work, which they may not agree to. A remediation company may refuse to grant retroactive construction by agreement.

If they refuse, it is unlikely that insurance will be available. Even if consent is given, the owner may be asked to make changes to the property that could result in significant costs. Insurance is the most common solution. It is highly recommended that you be advised by a contractor, an architect, a drainage engineer or your local building control authority before the engagement. According to the 2010 building code, Scheme 1, Part H4, the agreement of a legal undertaker is required for construction work on a public sewer. When “public pollution channels” and “public surface water channels” pass underground, an owner of such land cannot build on or within the distribution line of such a channel without the approval of the regional wastewater operator. This is called “Build over Consent” or “Building over Agreement.” Such an agreement allows the legal undertaker to access the sewers for maintenance purposes. A construction by agreement will also determine the responsibilities of the legal undertaker to repair the damage suffered. Anyone can apply for the contract, including an owner or contractor. The most relevant is the one who is qualified, experienced or insured to create the information folder required for the construction contract. Of course, an entrepreneur may have the experience of the physical work associated with it, but this is completely independent of the experience in design and associated professional liability insurance. The owners of the United Kingdom have no assurance for this work.
