Development Fee and Repair Deposit
 
The Estate roads were not designed to handle modern construction traffic. Consequently, all developments result in some wear and tear to the Estate roads, bridges and verges. Applicants will be required (prior to commencement) for a Development Fee to offset such general damage and accelerated wear and tear, based on the size and composition of the proposed development. In addition, applicants will be required to lodge a damage deposit with WERC before work begins on any site. This deposit will reflect an estimate of the likely damage to the area surrounding the works, based on the nature and scale of the project. The deposit will be returned on completion of the project after the contractors and/or applicant repair all specific damage to the roads and verges in the immediate area of the site.
 
 
Wayleave Charges
 
If the position of an existing driveway is changed, a wayleave charge of £500 will be levied.
