Relocation and boundaries


A subdivided block is no longer a single block, it’s now two or more. Or at least, it will be soon.

For example, a Battle Axe Subdivision is a block of land behind another that has street access via a long driveway.

In these situations, the sewer line of the front property will need to be diverted and rerouted to follow the boundary. All of which must remain within 600mm of this boundary.

Our plumbers are experienced with the plumbing work for strata and subdivisions.


What about sewer points?


As you may have guessed, an original sewer inspection point installed in lot 1, long before the very thought of subdivision is often in lot 2. This means you’ll be needing a new inspection point for lot 1.

What else will need to be done?

  • Creation of a sewer connection point for lot 2 (and any other additional lot)
  • Sewer junction cut ins, to ensure a smooth-running operation, without delay and unexpected additional costs
  • Sewer extensions.

Both the sewer junction cut ins and sewer extensions involve the Ministers Sewer which is Water Corporation infrastructure.

As such, close consultation and approval from the Water Corporation will be needed to conduct your subdivision and strata plans. The assistance and quality work of a licenced Perth plumber will also be needed.
