Will you remember where your utilities are routed underground on your site in five years time?

Chances are that you will struggle to remember exactly where the electricity, telephone, water or gas pipes are running across your site in a few years. So avoid having to dig up half the lawn or gingerly dig where you think a cable may be buried by marking the location of each utility on a map of the site.

Simply copy one of the site maps from you Planning Application and mark the exact location and route of each utility pipe or cable on the map. Then remember to copy the completed map again, and store it where you will find it when you need it!!
