We support developers that wish to construct their own mains. This is commonly referred to as ′Self Lay′.
Self Lay is the process where a developer instructs an accredited third party, known as a ‘Self Lay Provider’, to install new water mains and/or services.
Before commencing a Self Lay scheme, we recommend that both the developer and the Self Lay Provider (SLP) familiarise themselves with the current nationally agreed 'Code of Practice for the Self-Laying of Water Mains and Services'.
The Code of Practice can be found via the following link - Code of Practice for the Self-Laying of Water Mains and Services.
If you would like to construct new water mains and/or services under the Self Lay process, start by filling in our Water Mains Application form below:
