Our Principals : National Grid Electricity Transmission Plc. Damage to 275kV cable within Ellesmere Avenue, Mill Hill, London, NW7 3EU. CTA ref : EU036998
Received: 8 July 2022
I called the requestor as this may have been better suited to a disclosure request but actually all he is after is the street work notices relating to the address in question, Ellesmere Avenue prior to 27/06/2021 which may have led to the problems with the cable.
We are instructed by National Grid in connection with damage to one of their high voltage cables which sustained damage as a result of the actions of others and where such latent damage was discovered on 27th June 2021.
Investigations have indicated that the damage arose as a result of works undertaken by Affinity Water/their appointed contractors in either laying a replacement water main in the roadway or installing service pipes from the new water main to meter connections serving properties within Ellesmere Avenue.
We are seeking disclosure of street works notices issued by you relative to such works under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and where such works will pre-date 27/6/21
We thank you in anticipation of your assistance and look forward to receiving your early response.
