Full Section 50 Applications Carried Out in Ashford

If you require work to be undertaken on sewers or drains that run under a public highway, you need to have a full Section 50 application. At South East Drainage, we're one of the few Ashford and Kent companies that will take care of the entire application process for you.

Before any drainage installation or connection work can be carried out, a full Section 50 licence is required to operate equipment or install sewage pipes under the public highway. 

Making a sewer connection or installing new drainage often requires digging up kerbs, paths and roads to access the mains system, and of course, the sewage pipes will stay in place forever under an indefinite Section 50 licence. In fact, it's the same paperwork used for water, gas and electricity services.

In addition, a Section 106 licence is also required, a more specialist piece of paperwork for making connections to mains sewers. Just like the Section 50 applications, we take care of all the paperwork, including method statements and risk assessments for the complete project. 

So call us today on 01634 311799 to discuss your drainage connection plans with one of our experienced and friendly team.

We designed our drain installations and connections services to be comprehensive packages of works. For some Ashford drainage companies that just means digging a hole, doing the job and then just filling it back in. At South East Drainage, we believe in delivering to the highest possible quality and safety standards, making good disturbed landscaping, paths and roadways at the end of the project, but also taking care of everything at the front end of the process, including the Section 50 applications. 

Local councils, including in Ashford, issue the licence for an administrative fee, and with over two decades of experience in drainage services and water supply, we have close and long-standing relationships with local water boards, authorities and water companies, which ensures everything runs quickly and smoothly.

As an additional service extra, we also specialise in taking care of all on-site liaison and inspections with these organisations, making sure that every part of the installation meets safety and building standards and regulations so that it is approved for mains sewer connection. We pride ourselves on delivering quality work for Ashford clients, whether they are rural homeowners or large building contractors, and taking care of the paperwork means we are able to deliver the very best all-round customer service experience.

Our company and team are fully certified and qualified to undertake works around and on the public highway, with NRSWA certification as standard across all engineers. We are also CITB, Rated People and SafeContractor accredited.
