    Perfectly normal - if it doesn't bother you or your neighbour leave as you said otherwise neighbour should look to get a new connection installed

    That's poor from TW. The external stop tap IS their responsibility- suppose it's a case of it being non essential
    They are having a horrid time with their performance and been knee capped by ofwat for it

    to answer some of the points - options with consent or EA informed is to discharge into the river - the excessive amount or unnotified discharge is what water companies get fined and prosecuted for.

    there is legislation for suds so we see a large amount of suds being formed - mostly its done on a financial incentive and housebuilder can claw back some money for doing so (dont quote me on that) - foul water still need to connect to the sewer network

    rainwater = waste - well due to the language and terminology used in law, the adoption of SUDs is an area that is being looked into - for the mean time i dont see why agriculture couldnt some of it or even for firefighting purposes
    the strategic water plan is miles off where it should - at least 10 years in some towns and cities - there is no capacity within the existing highway infrastructure to lay new pipes so could be looking at greater distances or private land being used (all subjective)- water companies are a business and with privatisation (rightly or wrongly) means they need to make a profit/turnover (apart from welsh water which is not for profit)

    also on most housing development - the concept of green infrastructure such as garden roofs etc are not done - its cheaper for mass production of a traditional pitch roof frame and bang it all on site in a day - the only SUDs I've seen looking at plans is a large ditch or two

    I'm now planning the process of getting the bathroom now. If I get the bathroom reskimmed the plan is to tile straight on it. Can I deal the bath and sink to the wall before tiling to offer that double seal protection?

    Just ruling out having to dot and dab moisture boards etc
