  • Blocked or Damaged Drains and Sewers

    South Bucks District Council does not have maintenance or repair responsibilities for plumbing or drains other than those serving their own premises.

  • Who is responsible?

    There are different names for the pipes commonly used to discharge waste water from buildings. In order to establish who is responsible when the pipework becomes blocked or needs repair it is necessary to understand the different types.

  • Preventing Drainage Problems

    Disposable nappies, baby wipes, cleaning wipes, cotton buds and sanitary products are just a few of the household items regularly flushed down the toilet which can cause blockages and result in unnecessary expense and inconvenience for many householders.
