Q. WHAT HAPPENS ONCE I HAVE SUBMITTED MY ADVANCED NOTIFICATION?

A. The Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations and Scottish Water Byelaws allow 10 working days for water suppliers to grant their consent. You should not start work until consent has been granted. A water supplier may not withhold consent unreasonably. They may however, grant consent subject to conditions, which must be followed.

If consent is not given within the ten working days, then the Regulations and Byelaws deem the water suppliers’ consent to have been granted. However, any work must still comply with the Water Fittings Regulations and Scottish Water Byelaws.
