Boundary wall setback from drain

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Has anyone experienced the following:

- The rear boundary of your landed property adjoins directly to a drain that runs between your row of houses and the row behind.

- Rear boundary wall is set back 1-2m from the drain, 

Technically, that 1-2m setback is your land. Any way to "reclaim" it?

Legally no. In your DIP, PUB would have stated clearly that you are not allowed to build over the drain, etc.

the most you can do is set your boundary wall up to where the public drain’s structure ends. This means the foundation of your boundary wall is abutting the drain wall. 

If you choose to reclaim the drain later, in the event that PUB needs to access the drain for works, you will have to hack whatever is built over the drain and reinstate at your own cost
