New Build House

Question

Hi,

If you purchased a house that was half completed which had no intake. Who decides where the main incommer would be. Is it upto DNO where it goes and you have to put CU nearby or can you specify where you would want it to go?

Thanks in advance for any replies

Cheers

You can have it where you like , within reason . I would say a meter box is the way to go TBH. They don't care where the C/U is, thats down to you.

they prefer meter is external, but CU can go anywhere. just bear in mind that if its some distance from meter (typically 3mtr, although some DNO may state different), then the tails may need a switch fuse

As the others have said...

nower days DNO insist upon an external meter box to be fitted accessible from the front of the property..

They may require to come and do a site visit & then give specific recommendation as to their preferred location for the Ext meter box, hockey stick, underground duct etc...

from there the CU and customers gear is up to the installing electrician's discretion.

To add to the correct answers given so far.

You will have to apply for a new supply if not already done, this will involve you submitting a ordnance survey type map of the address and a plan showing where you want the new supply to enter the building.
