Connecting a rain water down pipe into a public surface rain water sewer

Cut a long story short, the existing drainpipe drains water onto our drive and down a slope into the lawn. We're having some work done and I want this drainpipe to connect to a nearby rain water manhole on the driveway which connects into the public surface water sewer. I have been told this is illegal because leaves could block it up and I would need to sign a disclaimer for this work to happen. Really?

New one on me, being illegal because of leaves :confused::LOL: You May need to let your water undertaker know though, as essentially, it may return to their treatment works.
