Just seen 5 buildings in my local high street demolished. Not a single one had any disconnections that i could see, either electric, gas, or water.

No patches on the tarmac anywhere for any of them.

I take it they dig a hole and just bury them then??
Doesnt sound like the most safe practise.

They are piling at the moment so waiting for a leak to spring up!

I saw a lamp-post 'removed' by a builder as it was in the way of the access to a building site.
Once the development was complete, I reported the lamp as out to the Council.
It took 6 months to work out that column 5 was no longer there!

When I was 'inspecting' I had to find 'missing services' for the electricity board. You'd be surprised how many never get potted off as it costs money!!

No chance. I worked on 1 of the buildings years ago, it had its own small TNCS supply. Warehouse next door came in from a different angle, and building at the front came in from a different street altogether.

Pulling the Sub would take out the sorting office next door, the police station, and most seriously- the pub!

We arranged a removal of service as a domestic property had two meters and to supply's. The lovely local DNO came in and removed meter and DNO tails leaving the cable head intact and still live on the wall. The removal of cable head is at there discretion DNO told customer.

Joiner boxed the old cable head in and left a 300x300access hatch.
