To register for the on-demand services for the purposes of Safedig Maps please complete the ‘Agreement’ shown in the download section at the bottom of the page, and email to Records.Information@northernpowergrid.com stating whether you require access to Northeast, Yorkshire or both SafeDig Map services.
There are currently two on-demand systems for our two licence areas:
Northern Powergrid (Northeast): The system allows you to download our mains record maps along with an application to aid the locating, viewing and printing. Click here to register for the Northern Powergrid (Northeast) system. Once we have received your completed ‘Agreement’ and your online registration. Your account will be activated and we will email you with your logon details.
Northern Powergrid (Yorkshire): The system allows you to locate, view and print mains record plans via a website. Once we have received your completed ‘Agreement’ your account will be created and activated. We will email you with your logon details and how to access the website.
IDNOs (Independent Distribution Network Operators) are operating within our Licensed Area. IDNOs have been granted a licence to operate existing or newly built distribution networks, for example Housing Estates. Northern Powergrid is not responsible for these Networks and as a result the assets that comprise them are not shown on our records.
IDNOs should be contacted directly for their asset records and care should be exercised when working in the vicinity of sites that may have both Northern Powergrid and IDNO assets present.
If you are an ICP requiring access to our mains records for:
Northern Powergrid (Northeast): Complete the ‘Agreement’ and registration process detailed above as per Safedig Maps.
Northern Powergrid (Yorkshire): This service requires a separate ‘Agreement’ process; please contact us via Records.Information@northernpowergrid.com stating that you are an ICP requiring access to our mains records. Subject to your eligibility we will email you a copy of the user agreement together with further instructions.
Please contact us via Records.Information@northernpowergrid.com if you have any queries about these on-demand services or your eligibility.
