Inspection Chamber tarmaced over

    Hi all.
    I just moved into a new build and had a couple of issues with drains.
    The builder did a survey (used a drainage Co to do it) and it looks like they have used an inspection Chamber to deal with a direction change from the fall pipe (this chamber only has one entry and exit) to connect it to another manhole about 3ft further down the drive (which joins three pipes into 1)
    The first inspection Chamber has been tarmaced over and there is no access except by rods. When we queried this the builder has stated it is OK because it is accessible by rods.
    This does not seem right, can anyone point me in the right direction to the building regs or if it is generally accepted practice let me have thoughts.
