New gas appliances, supply and meters
Fitting a new gas appliance
If you want to fit a new gas cooker into your home, you must get written permission from us first.
If permission is given you will need to do the following:
- The new appliance must be installed by a Gas Safety registered engineer. Visit the Gas Safe Register website for details
- appliances must be installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions and the current Gas Safety (installation and use) regulations
- It is important that airbricks and other ventilation are not blocked or obstructed in anyway.
- The appliance must be inspected as part of our gas servicing programme
Gas supply and Gas meters
If you want to arrange a new gas supply, you must get permission from the Council before contacting the supplier, unless we are installing the gas heating for you.
If you have a problem with your gas meter you will need to contact your energy supplier.
To find out who your gas supplier is, call the Meter Point Administration Service on 0870 608 1524 (calls cost 7p/min plus your network access fee). They may ask you for the serial number located on your meter.
