Extension at the rear of the property
Hi, I am buying a property where there is no extension and I have plans to build an extension with kitchen but in one of the searches it has been noticed that there is a drainage at the back of the property i am buying. I did ask my solicitor is that a drain or sewer but he doesn't know. I have got a map where there are some red dots along the boundary of house and also there are some blue dots. Does anyone aware of what these red and blue dots are in that DWS CON29DW map ?
Will there be a possibility of getting planning permission to build an extension (I don't want a big extension but the one which one can built without planning permission in general case is OK, i think it is 3metres).
Do I need to go to Thames water for planning permission or council, any advice ?
I have a map with me but I cant paste it here otherwise my description here will make more sense.
Thanks for your reply SBS. I have mailed to thames water for more info on that map, so lets see wht they come back.

I'm not familiar with your blue and red dots but they should be explained by the Key on the map.
You need to go to the council and submit a building notice even if you consider it to be within permitted development and if the drain is a sewer you will need permission from Thames Water.

You can build up to 3 metres to the rear of your property without planning. A good builder should be able to help you with all the submissions be it to council or to thames water. This may be an interceptor which you will have to remove but may not need not involve Thames water, If it is a manhole you will. Ultimately building control have to pass the work either way. If the main sewer line that it runs into runs under or near your extension you will have to apply to build on or near a sewer. It would be hard to tell without seeing the lie of the land.
