It's important that we understand growth and development across our region so that we can prepare for the future.
Whilst we're not a statutory consultee in the planning application process, our Planning team proactively reviews planning applications for major development to understand how proposals might impact on our assets and ensure that we can serve proposed new development.
We also work to influence planning policy as it changes and evolves in every Local Plan across the region.
When we consider a planning application we look to see if an applicant has undertaken a Pre-Planning Enquiry to inform their drainage solution. If they have, we will recommend that the application can be progressed. If the relevant Local Authority grants planning approval, as long as there are no planning conditions attached relating to drainage connections the applicant can move forward to applying for a sewer connection with us.
