      You will have up to 90 days to send in your signed acceptance and pay for the works. We will contact you to agree a start date when the connection cost and acceptance is received.

    Information You will need

    We will need the following in order to progress your application:

    • Your contact details
    • The site details and full address.
    • Hourly and annual gas loads.
    • Site Plans
    • Your work requirements including type of work required.
    • A non-refundable quotation charge [if applicable]

    How much will it cost and how long will it take.

    Quotation fee

    When you request a gas connection service, you will be charged a non refundable quotation fee [where applicable] dependent on the type of work you require. This covers the analysis of the gas network and production of design for the works required. In most cases a physical survey will be undertaken prior to the quotation being issued.


    Connection cost

    When you have paid the quotation fee, we will provide you with a connection quote that is valid for 90 days. This may include the cost of an easement [where applicable] and we will require additional information such as your solicitors details that will act on your behalf. Please see easement information within the guidance section on our information hub.

    We will work with you to meet your work delivery dates and will always offer you the earliest date available for the works. Where local traffic management or highway restrictions apply in your area we will let you know as this may increase the lead time before we start work.

    Arranging a gas meter installation

    For New Connections requests, we will provide you with a Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN) for your property after you have accepted the quotation. You will need this MPRN when contacting your preferred energy supplier to arrange your gas meter installation.
