I'm thinking of decking out the back of my house. Problem is there are
3 manholes which will be covered by it. Is it sufficient to make sure
than the joists do not inhibit accessing these and by screwing the
decking down will ensure that they are accessible (all be it with a
little more hassle). Or do I have to make accessibility more
straightforward by putting trap doors for each of them which will look
pretty unsightly by my reckoning. I would prefer option 1 if possible
but would also like to make sure I do it right. (are there any
regulations on this??)
Also any tips on finishing the decking around drains and downpipes?
I think that is perfectly acceptable.
Next time anyone goes to Brighton, visit the fountain in the Old Steine.
The fencing on the eastern side of the grassed area has just such a
removabvle section (about halfway along). What's under it? An entrance
to the sewer system in that area (actually, to a large overflow
chamber). If it's good enough for them...

I just remembered.
In the same house the previous owner had literally concreted over the
top of a manhole cover for the sewer - at the front of the house this
time. No way that manhole cover was accessible without a road drill.
