Information on Use of National Grid land

Need to acquire rights to install new assets or undertake works on NGET land?

We appreciate that customers connecting to NGET’s network require cable easements through our non-operational land to get to their point of connection within NGET’s substation. There is a significant volume of customers requiring these easements. As the volume of connections continues to increase, significant amounts of our operational assets are subject to expansion strategies, and new sites triggered. This may mean that easements cannot be progressed until substation design is finalised.  

It is however important that we are aware of any land requirements you may have, so we can plan ahead. Please read our guidance below for more information, and contact NGET[email protected]  for any enquiries.

The guidance explains the process for securing rights over land owned by National Grid Electricity Transmission (leasehold/freehold and/or cable rights), the high-level design principles for development of land in proximity to operational electricity transmission assets, common land constraints to be aware of and requirements in relation to planning applications and use of permitted development rights.
