Trusted Section 50 Applications in Gravesend

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

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

Installing new drainage systems or making a sewer connection 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 is the same paperwork used for electricity, gas and water 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 installations and connections services to be comprehensive packages of works. For some Gravesend 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 disturbed roadways, landscaping and 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 Gravesend and across Kent 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 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 take pride in delivering high quality work for Gravesend clients, whether they are rural homeowners or large building contractors, 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.
