If you are planning your own engineering works in the highway and would like to check to see what plant we may have in the area, a formal Plant enquiry to SSE is the process you need to follow.  The guidelines below will help you:

SSE Enterprise Telecoms adhere to ‘New Roads; Street Works Act (NRSWA) 1991’ and ‘HAUC Measures Necessary Where Apparatus is Affected by Major Works (Diversionary Works)’ Code of Practice.

Please note initial enquiries (C2’s), for information regarding the location of our existing apparatus, are FREE. Budget estimates (C3’s), for works that we may need to undertake to alter our existing plant and equipment are also FREE but only for NRSWA highway authority funded schemes.

Please send your initial enquiries (C2’s) to:

SSE Asset Data
Daneshill Industrial Estate
Basingstoke
Hampshire
RG24 8QQ

Telephone: 01256 337294

Email: asset.data@sse.com

We will require the following information in order to progress your query as quickly and as efficiently as possible:

  • A covering letter
  • An area of interest plan and/or map (PDF format if emailed)

SSE Asset Data will respond on behalf of SSE Enterprise Telecoms and SSE Power, with an Initial Enquiry (C2) response letter and plans for both Telecoms and Power networks. The letter will provide local SSE Power depot contact details for Budget Estimates (C3’s).

Budget estimates (C3’s)

Should you require a cost estimate to move our telecoms plant and equipment to accommodate your works, please contact us at:

SSE Enterprise Telecoms
Telecom Alterations
1 Forbury Place
7th Floor
43 Forbury Road

RG1 3JH

Email: telecom.alterations@sse.com

We will require the following information in order to progress your query as quickly and as efficiently as possible:

  • A covering letter
  • Plans / maps showing existing & proposed conditions (min 1:500 scale and PDF format if emailed)
  • Scheme cost apportionment information with confirmation of who the works principal is (the person or company funding your project)

SSE Enterprise Telecoms will respond one of two ways:

  • A budget fee letter (if your scheme falls outside of NRSWA) showing the payment required to prepare a cost estimate
  • If it’s a NRSWA scheme or if you’ve already paid the budget fee, then a budget estimate (C3) response letter, a plan showing our telecoms network and a pricing sheet showing the estimated works (C5) with costs required to prepare a detailed estimate (C4)

Depending on the complexity of your scheme, we aim to provide a response to initial enquiries (C2) within 10 working days, budget estimates (C3) within 20 working days and detailed estimates (C4) within 25 working days.
