Technical Guidance Notes - Third-Party Guidance for Working Near National Grid Electricity Transmission Equipment
|Publication Date:||1 January 2016|
Purpose and scope
The purpose of this document is to give guidance and information to third parties who are proposing, scheduling or designing developments close to National Grid Electricity Transmission assets.
The scope of the report covers information on basic safety and the location of our assets - and also highlights key issues around particular types of development and risk areas.
In the case of electrical assets, National Grid does not authorise or agree safe systems of work with developers and contractors. However, we will advise on issues such as electrical safety clearances and the location of towers and cables. We also work with developers to minimise the impact of any National Grid assets that are nearby.
