Trusted Section 50 Applications in Dartford

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

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

Installing new drainage systems or making a sewer connection often requires digging up roads, kerbs and paths 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 is the same paperwork used for gas, water and electricity services.

Alongside 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 risk assessments and method statements 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 connections and installations services to be extensive packages of works. For some Dartford 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 safety and quality 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 in Dartford and across Kent issue the licence for an administrative fee, and with over 20 years of experience in drainage and water supply services, we have long-standing and close relationships with water boards, local authorities and water companies, which ensures everything runs smoothly and quickly.

As an additional service extra, we also specialise in taking care of all on-site inspections and liaisons with these organisations, ensuring that every part of the installation meets building and safety regulations and standards so that it is approved for mains sewer connection. We take pride in delivering high quality work for Dartford clients, whether they are large building contractors or 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 around and on the public highway, with NRSWA certification as standard across all engineers. We are also CITB, Rated People and SafeContractor accredited.
