Divert electricity cables or equipment

0800 029 4280

A diversion is where we have to move our electricity cables or overhead power lines because they are affected by major highways works, major bridge works or major transport works.

If you are developing a small plot of land or a major site, it is important you check the location of our electricity cables before you start digging. You can request plans here. If our cables are at risk of damage by your works then you need to let us know.

Electricity substations
If a substation is an electricity network substation rather than a private one you will need to provide an alternative location for that substation within your development. This also needs to gain our approval.
