    It sounds like you are wanting to undertake a private development and cannot dispose of stormwater on site and there is no public drain to your boundary. Council normally will not force a neighbour to provide an easement for you to cross his property to connect to any services. The key word in that section is "may".

    Thanks Shalodge, I will check on site options. The line does go through the section though is on the top of a sloping section. It appeared the line going down was in council land but it's about 500mm into the neighbouring section

    A nieghbour refusing 500 access is down right unreasonable the disruptipon would be miminal!

    or the neighbourfence is over the boundary. This might be a good time to get the site resurveyed perhaps the neighbour is over the boundary.

    Also you can pump to the uphill if you need to and id the pump stops the nieghbour copes the water anyway which is Karma?

    Thanks John, the site has been surveyed. Interestingly the sewer is on my side. Will check options

    It is disapointing to me that they can simply take the position they don't want to discuss it and leave it at that. It also indicates the rule 460 you brought up has no value ?

    What do you mean the sewer is on your side?

    They can do what they like but s460 needs to be enforced That is what it is for.

    the council are bound to do this

    wjhat about posting the council ariel with services indocated so we can see the facts?

    they dont want they dont like to but that is the law!

    Thanks John,

    just sent you a message, not sure how to attach a diagram here.

    looks like the main sewer line runs down the side of my property where they connect into.

    main sewer line runs down the side of my property
    But isn't it storm water that is the issue?

    Correct Shalodge, just seemed ironic that both services have been placed just outside the council land between our properties the storm water on their side and the sewer on mine
