Planning your works

Obtaining Clearance to Proceed
When a job has been design approved, you are required to submit the procedure and obtain clearance to proceed before you can carry out the work to Cadent’s network. Depending on the scope of the job, this could be a Start Date Notification (SDN), Routine Operation (RO) or Non-Routine Operation (NRO) and the table below details the criteria for each.
CtP Criteria Lead time Form E-mail address
SDN LP ≤63mm 3 working days SDN
RO LP ≤12”/355mm 5 working days RO
  • LP >12”/355mm
  • All connections into MP or IP
  • Complex works determined by the discretion of the AE*
5 working days NRO
*Further information on determining whether an RO or NRO is required can be found in IGEM/GL/6
If your works require an easement, we will not be able to allow you to plan your works in with us until we have confirmation that the document has been signed and sealed by our legal team.
