Before you start works
Anyone carrying out groundworks should firstly use our free cable records service to check for any underground electricity cables where works are planned.
Private residents and homeowners using the records service will need a customer number and postcode of the property. Contractors can request a login from us.
Unfortunately, the system is only accessible on a desktop or laptop running Internet Explorer with the Microsoft Silverlight plugin enabled.
A cable avoidance tool can also be located to confirm these records. If you do not have access to one of these, we can arrange this for you for free.
