Q. CAN I BUILD A NEW EXTENSION OVER THE EXISTING MAINS WATER SUPPLY PIPE?

A. This type of work could prevent access for repair and maintenance. 

It would be normal for the existing water pipe to be either re-routed around the new extension, maintaining accessibility, or for it to be installed in a duct so that it can be easily removed thereby enabling it to be maintained or repaired in the future. However there may be local restrictions and you should contact your water supplier to ensure you are aware of these.
