First Class Section 50 Applications in Croydon

If you are considering having work 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 are one of the few Croydon and London 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 install sewage pipes or operate equipment under the public highway. 

Making a sewer connection or installing new drainage systems 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 to this, 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 look after 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 installation and connection services to be comprehensive packages of works. For some Croydon drainage companies that just means simply digging a hole, doing the job and then just filling it back in again. At South East Drainage, we believe in delivering to the highest possible quality and safety standards, making good roadways, landscaping and disturbed paths 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 in Croydon and across London and the South East issue the licence for an administrative fee, and with over 20 years of experience in water supply and drainage services, we have close and long-standing relationships with local water companies, water boards and local authorities, which ensures everything runs quickly and smoothly. 

As an additional service extra, we also specialise in taking care of all on-site inspections and liaison with these organisations, ensuring 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 high quality work for Croydon clients, whether they are large building contractors or rural homeowners, and taking care of all the paperwork means that we are able to deliver the very best all-round customer service experience.

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