House builders & new connections
The Developer Services team are here to help you through every stage of your house build or new connection from:
Pre-development - Our engineers are on hand to provide a free early discussion to land owners and developers to guide you on points of connection for both water and wastewater, drainage strategies, discharge rates and existing infrastructure. This will help to prevent delays later on in the process and avoid unforeseen issues.
Planning - At a strategic level, we consult with the local planning authority and promote suitable sites that can be serviced with water and wastewater.
If you consult with us at pre-development stages, we can agree the most sustainable drainage strategies for your site and support you when you submit your planning application.
Water and Wastewater services - Our team is on hand to help you with new connections, provide diversions and build overs when necessary and assist with water and wastewater
We provide advice on using a Self-Lay organisation for a new water main or you can simply ask us.
Under Section 104 of the Water Industry Act 1991, you can apply to transfer ownership of newly constructed sewers to United Utilities by way of an ‘Adoption’ agreement.
