How can LSBUD help Commercial Users?
If your work involves any works that may affect utility assets, then it is really important that you get whatever information you can about the pipes and cables that may be above or under the ground.
Even minor works such as landscaping, fencing, drainage or forestry work can damage pipes and cables, putting you and your colleagues at risk of serious harm, as well as significant cost implications for you and your company.
Please click the link to the “How-To” videos to help show how you can use our service to help keep you safe.
Who should use the service?
The service is designed to be used by anyone that needs to know where utility assets (pipes and cables) are in order to work safely. This includes:
- Local Authorities
- Fencing installers
- Private Individuals
…and many more.
Enquiries can be for simply checking what is there for future requirements or for immediate use, i.e. for an urgent excavation. Works can be of any scale from a highway scheme to simply replacing a garden fence.
LSBUD SERVICE GUIDE
How does LSBUD work?
The service can be broken down into three easy steps-
- You provide a few details of your works and submit a free online enquiry
- You receive an instant response showing which of our registered asset owners (‘Members’) have assets near your site
- Our registered members send you the plans of their assets relevant for your area, in accordance with their processes.
LSBUD Members respond in a variety of different ways; some will respond automatically while others may request further information.
Please note that not all asset owners are LSBUD Members and it is your responsibility to identify and contact all asset owners within your search area.
