National Grid Transmission Searches price increase

National Grid Transmission Searches will increase in price from Tuesday 1st September. 

From this date, the price of the search will be £87.68 (£105.22 incl. VAT). The current price is £78.83 (plus VAT).

The search identifies whether any high voltage lines – which carry approximately 11,000 volts from power stations to substations around the country – or high pressure gas pipes – which move gas to local area distribution networks – are within close proximity to the searched property.

This equipment is usually protected by easements or wayleaves, which can restrict development in the vicinity.
