Sewer requisitions

If land owned by a third party stands between a new development site and the location of a public sewer, and agreement to cross this land cannot be reached by the developer and the third party, then, under Section 98 of the Water Industry Act 1991, we may be able to requisition a new public sewer to cross the land.
