Utility Essentials

​This report gives visibility of the 5 key services – Gas, Electric, Water, Sewage and British Telecom, supplied for areas of up to 25 hectares.

Product Details

The Essentials report is collated and delivered in 5 working days and is ideal for remote sites where only the main utilities providers are likely to be present or projects where the aim is merely to check the availability of the main utilities (water/sewer, gas, electric and BT) e.g. in the planning stages of a new development.

Due to the extensive nature of some searches and the number of utilities searched, it can happen that not all responses are received within the relevant timeframe. When this does occur your report will be delivered with all available content as requested, and a final report will be delivered as soon as the missing information has been received. Please note, a search of Vtesse Networks Ltd is not included in this report. If you require a Vtesse Networks Ltd search this is available through our Utility Singles Telecoms report.
