Domestic existing supply with TN-C-S service head and meter in external cabinet; meter tails and earth conductor (16mm/10mm) go through wall and run 4-5m to to MK Sentry consumer unit mounted on plaster wall in understairs cupboard. Main Earthing Terminal is earth bar within consumer unit; but not enough ways to terminate additional main bonding conductors required - so new earthing terminal is needed. Where to put it? Plaster-wall-mounted below the consumer unit, or outside in the meter cabinet (is that allowed - presumably the cabinet belongs to the DNO, not the householder?)? Pros and cons from experience, please?
