Gas Connection In Neighbours Land
Posted 25 April 2016 - 05:25 PM
I've had my arm bent about including a gas connection into the property as a future proofing mechanism, and also now we have found out we may have to apply for PP for an ASHP..!
The mains gas is in the road to the side of the property and then it is tee'd off to serve a large nursing home to the far side of the plot. The branch comes under a 7ft high wall and continues parallel to the back of the house, between the existing house and the new build.
On the National Grid connection system it asks you to connect your domestic pipe to the nearest "red" line - which is in the neighbours garden ! Its only just inside their plot, and runs parallel to the fence so if they dug it up then it would most likely be through a patch of gravel and nothing too expensive.
The estimated cost is £420, so its not bank breaking at all - the question though is who asks the neighbours for permission to dig up their garden..?

Hence why I would rather go in via the garden next door.... its the old gravel drive so I can't see why it would be an issue but I shall wait and see !!

Rang National Grid and an incredibly helpful young lady on the end of the phone explained the whole process ..!
Even pulled the site up, realised why I thought it was the correct route to connect then pointed me at the form on their website.
Simple consent form, neighbour signs it and they do the rest....
Now to decide whether to go ASHP or gas.....
