    I have an inspection chamber that is located in my garden that I would like to move, if possible.

    The chamber has three drains running in to it, two from my house and one from a neighbour. The drain then runs along the side of the house and out to the front to join the main drain running down the road.

    I would like to know if its possible to have this chamber moved so it it sits parallel to my house, past the green dashed line which is a garden gate.

    I have attached a very crude drawing of the area. My reason for asking whether its possible is because we are thinking about extending in the near future.

  3. From your description it is likely that the chamber forms part of a public sewer.

    If that is the case then you will need permission from the water company who own the chamber & sewer to make any alterations to it/them. If you are planning to extend you may also need to consult with them dependant on depth and distance from your proposed build.

    As above, First port of call would be to speak to the Water Company and see what they will allow. If they want the sewer moving, then it could get expensive, if not impossible.
