Relocate an existing Pole or Line

In some circumstances you will need to get an electricity pole or an overhead electricity line moved.  There are three steps involved :

  1. Get an Ordnance Survey Map and Site Plan
  2. Make an application
  3. Application is assessed

Please follow these steps below to apply to move an electricity line or pole.  

Step by Step Guide

You need an Ordnance Survey map (scale 1:2500-1:10560) showing the location of your site and detailed site plan (scale 1:100-1:500) showing the layout of any new or existing buildings. Mark the exact location of the line or pole to be moved with a red pen. Photocopies are accepted.

Note: In cases where the work you are doing requires planning permission, you must provide details of the permission.

You need to send a written request to your local ESB Networks office along with the Ordnance Survey Map and a site plan. 
On receipt of your request our engineering staff assesses the application and will contact you directly to discuss the next steps.
