East Midlands civil engineering company BSP Consulting has put forward its views on the future of sewers and drains.

The company, with offices in Nottingham, Derby, Leicester and Sheffield, is part of a UK-wide list featuring national bodies, local authorities, universities, water companies and major organisations that have taken part in the consultation.

Defra, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, has been seeking opinions on the national build standards and automatic adoption arrangements for gravity foul sewers and lateral drains going forward.

BSP Consulting is among the likes of key organisations such as parliamentary groups, professional bodies, political parties and national associations that have come up with ideas and suggestions about the subject.

“At BSP Consulting we consider that the implementation of the Flood and Water Management Act could have a significant effect on the future of development,” said BSP Consulting associate director Tony Goddard.

“We believe it is vital for people “at the coal face” within the construction industry to influence the execution of Government policy. Responding to this consultation is another example of how we are striving to ensure a fair future for development for all our clients.”

Defra is expected to consider the views expressed during consultation over the next few weeks and months.

The proposals focus on how water and sewerage undertakers will adopt new sewers and lateral drains connecting to the public sewerage network.
