Water Mains Application for Capacity Check
Southern Water provides an optional Capacity Check service to assist developers in identifying possible constraints that may be associated with servicing a development site. The Capacity Check can assist developers in understanding the potential costs and timescales involved in servicing a site prior to land acquisition or the submission of a planning application. The results of the Capacity Checks are for information only and should not be regarded as an approval or rejection of your proposals, nor should the results be used as a basis for design.

Please also note that Southern Water is currently consulting on the New connections charging as directed by Ofwat. Please read through these documents as they may affect your development site in the future.

Level 1 – Preliminary Fresh Water Capacity Check

This is a simple check that will identify whether the required capacity is available adjacent to or close to the proposed development. Should capacity not be available, you will be provided with an indication of the nearest point at which capacity is available. It should be noted that a charge will be made for any repeat enquiries.

Should lack of capacity be identified a Level 2 Indicative Hydraulic Assessment can be considered.

We will endeavour to provide you with a written reply within 15 working days of receipt of a complete application. If we are unable to do this you will be contacted and given the reason why.

Important Note: The results of the Level 1 Preliminary Capacity Check do not necessarily provide an identified solution for servicing the proposed development site. The Level 1 Check is aimed at simply providing an indication of whether capacity is available. Please refer to the application form for the fee required. This service is only available for developments which are less than 500 units. The impact of a development greater than 500 units is substantial and the more extensive Level 2 Indicative Hydraulic Assessment (see next section) is required. Should you wish to take advantage of this service, please complete the Capacity Check Application Form and submit together with the appropriate fees and drawings.

Level 2 – Indicative Hydraulic Assessment

This is a more in-depth service. In addition to identifying the nearest point of capacity, (as per the Level 1 Preliminary Capacity Check) this service will identify an indicative hydraulic assessment for servicing the site.

We will endeavour to provide you with a detailed report within 25 working days of receipt of a complete application. If we are unable to do this you will be contacted and given the reason why.

Please refer to the application form for the fee required. Should you wish to take advantage of this service, please complete the Capacity Check Application Form and submit together with the appropriate fees and drawings.

Important Note: Level 1 and Level 2 Capacity Checks do not provide indicative costs of the works required to service the site, nor of the construction works required.
