8 steps to get the work done

There are eight simple steps to get the work done whether you are applying for a new connection, an alteration or a disconnection online.

Current waiting time for a gas connection is 6-8 weeks from the date we receive a payment and acceptance. We will always try to offer the earliest date available, if traffic management or other restrictions apply in your area this may increase waiting times.
