Why would I need an underground electricity cable assessment?
If you're building an extension, completing ground works, doing large-scale gardening or erecting a fence, you may wish to have an underground cable assessment. We can tell you where our underground electricity cables are and make sure no cables are within the area you are working.
We will do this free of charge.
Before you apply, you will need:
This is the location of the area you are working. We need this so we can tell you if there are any underground electricity cables in the area.
We need this so we can provide the best advice and service for the work you are doing near our underground electricity cable.
We need this so we can make an appointment for you.
NOTE - We will always try to book your appointment as close to the date you need.
We need this so we can make sure we can complete the job safely.
Is there a locked gate or driveway?
We advise anyone working near our electricity cables or substations to read the HSE's 'Working near electricity' guidance notes by clicking here.
