Utilities Statement

Required for all Major developments

A Utilities Statement will be required for all major applications.

The proposed water supply and drainage should be shown on the submitted plans.

The Statement should provide details of how the development will connect to existing utility infrastructure systems (electricity, gas, telecommunication and water supply, including foul and surface water drainage systems). It should demonstrate that the development will not result in undue pressure on the delivery of those services. For larger developments there may be a need to consider new infrastructure.

Additional consideration needs to be given to the energy demands of Air Source Heat Pumps and Electric Charging points

Early discussion of this issue will identify potential shortfalls which may require direct provision or off-site contributions to improve service provision.
