Dial Before You Dig

If you are planning to carry out any excavation works or development, you must contact all the relevant utility companies to ascertain what pipes, cables, wires, lines and other apparatus exist close to where the work is to take place.

The contact details vary depending on whereabouts in the UK you are intending to dig. If you are not sure which company looks after the area, please see our gas and electricity distribution maps.
