Hi everyone, again i need information on the restrictions of building driveway over a sewer manhole! The land we are looking to buy has this man hole close to the side where our driveway will be. 5m from the left boundary. I guess driveway has to be 5.6m wide+ 0.9m side setback. As it will definitely come under driveway area.
We dont have the option of switching the driveway to the other hand side as it got a padmount easement (padmount located in The adjacent lot, but we have the easement).
Just trying to find out whether the lot is worth buying or is it going to be a huge cost factor in terms of building the driveway over it?

You need to contact Sydney water to check what they would charge to adjust the manhole level to the driveway level.
Once that's done there shouldn't be any extra cost.
