Land drainage and discharge consents
We have received a lot of enquiries recently about developments that rely on drainage ditches crossing third party land. Here is a typical scenario:
Site 1 is to be developed and needs a drainage system to disperse surface water. A pre-existing man made drainage ditch extends across the site and over the boundary to cross adjoining land, site 2. From site 2, the drainage ditch runs into a river.
