Trusted and Reliable Section 50 Applications in Tonbridge

If you are considering having work carried out on drains or sewers 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 Tonbridge and Kent companies that will take care of the entire application process for you.

Before any drainage connection or installation work can be undertaken, 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 paths, roads and kerbs 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, electricity and water 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 connection and installation services to be extensive packages of works. For some Tonbridge 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 landscaping, disturbed 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 Tonbridge and across Kent and the South East issue the licence for an administrative fee, and with over two decades of experience in drainage and water supply services, we have long-standing and close relationships with water boards, local authorities and local water companies, 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 building and safety standards and regulations so that it is approved for mains sewer connection. We take pride in delivering high quality work for Tonbridge 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 team and company are fully certified and qualified to undertake works on and around the public highway, with NRSWA certification as standard across all engineers. We are also CITB, Rated People and SafeContractor accredited.
