As above, it will be important to establish appropriate disposal of foul drainage from the site at an early stage in the planning process. We expect all foul drainage to be directed to mains foul sewer and early discussions with the Water Company will be required to ensure that connection can be made.
There will also be restrictions on any proposed infiltration of surface water to ground. Surface water drainage options will need to be agreed at an early stage in the planning process to ensure that there is an acceptable solution.
