Access to Land

We are continually working in communities across Scotland to maintain and improve our network. To ensure that we continue to deliver essential services and for the installation of new pipes and associated works, it is sometimes necessary for us to access private land.

This booklet is our Code of Practice for Access to Land which sets out good practice with regard to our powers and duties when we construct, inspect, maintain, repair or renew the public water and waste water network on private land. It also explains what you (the landowner and/ or occupier) can expect before and during any planned Scottish Water work.
