Basic pricing tool

Applications for connections are priced in accordance with our Connection Charging Methodology Statements, available to view here.  

However, to assist you with your connection requirements, we have developed a basic costing guide to provide an indication of pricing and the timescales for obtaining a connection. 

‘Prices from’ are provided on the basis of an existing network being available within 10m of each connection location.  These indicative charges exclude any excavation/reinstatement, reinforcement, extension assets, diversion works or legal consents and land rights. 

These costs are for general illustration purposes only and are not to be relied upon should you require a more accurate price in respect of specific premises.  To make an application for a new connection, please click here.
