Condensate pipe discharging onto pavement

One of my neighbours (he's a small builder, bit of a cowboy anyway) has recently had a condensing boiler installed in his house with the condensate pipe (white plastic) and PRV (copper) discharging directly onto the pavement. [It's a terrace house with no front garden].

The condensate obviously leaves the pavement permanently wet - and lately icy, of course. That's pretty dangerous, IMHO.

Who should I approach about this idiot arrangement? Local building control? Environmental Health? CORGI?

Suggestions, please....

Roads, highways and pavements dep't of your local council for a start as it's causing a hazard to pedestrians or LBC.
The usual thing to do first would be to speak to him yourself.

If thats not possible then I would say that Building Control are the correct and best people to get involved. You could also point out to them that it does not seem to have been fitted by a CORGI engineer.
