  • Please accept our apologies for the delay with this works. This is part of Bromley’s Street Lighting Investment project to replace older assets in the Borough. Complications have been revealed with the cabling at this location. It is necessary for UK Power Networks to undertake this work due to the type of cables involved. We are making arrangements for UKPN to visit the site but have not yet received a programme date from them. Please be assured we shall ensure this work is concluded as soon as possible.

  • Thank you for your report. We have been out to site today to investigate and have found that the service transfer by UKPN from old column to new has not yet happened, this would be why the old concrete stump is still present. I would like to apologise for the enquiry being closed as fixed as this clearly is not the case and I can only assume this was done in error when the job for the new column going in was completed. I have forwarded all relevant paperwork to UKPN and have asked for a programmed date of works. I will then update with a date to remove old column stump when service transfer is complete.

  • Still here - will this report reach its second birthday (March)!!

  • Thank you for your report. I can confirm that this job has been booked in for 14.01.2018.

  • Planned street lighting works last weekend were delayed due to the proximity of a gas escape which SGN had to attend as an emergency under a road closure. In addition a complication has been identified with the street lighting connection which shall require UKPN’s attendance. UKPN are helping and are currently planning a time for their crew to attend site during forthcoming weekend working. We shall publish a date for this work as soon as we have heard from UKPN.’

  • Please accept my apologies for the delay in further updates. This is proving to be a more difficult job then anticipated as we will need to carry out a new service from the overheads pole, which is situated in the adjacent field. We need to ensure we have permission to make a connection from this pole, liaise with the landowner to make arrangements and arrange a road closure. We will also need to carry out works on a Sunday to cause as less disruption as possible due to this road being on a bus route. UK Power Networks are currently working through the process and will update us with a programmed date of works as soon as possible.

  • We have been advised by UK Power Networks that they have sent out the necessary paperwork to the land owner. Under the Electricity Act, she is obliged to respond to the letter within 21 days, either with or without consent so unfortunately they are not able to programme in the works until they have received her permission to go ahead.

  • Update from UK Power Network as follows.

    We have established the owner of the field and made contact. We have explained what is required but she wants a meeting on site first off to go through it. She keeps horses in the field and has a few concerns. I am just waiting for her response on a suggested date.

    She has also insisted that the trenching in the field won’t be possible until the summer as the field is very wet and boggy. Our site inspector has agreed this is the case.

    I will update you again once the meeting with the owner has taken place.

  • The meeting with the land owner has now taken place. We have a couple enquiries to go through with regards to relocation of the horses so that works can take place. We are currently in discussion's to make this possible and as soon as we have the signed consent form, we will update with a programmed date of works. Please accept our apologies for the delay.

  • Apologies for the delay in keep you updated. We are still awaiting a programme date from UKPN as there are some on going issues with the landowner.
