Why do I need the Prime report?

This report is ideal for anyone making a local authority application for a vehicle crossover or a dropped kerb at their property. These applications require a set of utility records and our Prime search report meets this need.

Desktop utility search greatly reduces the chance of dangerous and expensive cable strikes or damage to other utility assets.

We classify the search responses received in terms of their proximity to the enquiry area using a red, amber and green system (RAG rating) which enables the reader to quickly pinpoint utilities of concern.

Who needs this report?

  • For individuals who need a set of utility records for works such as new vehicle access or dropped kerbs to their property
  • For developers who need a quick overview of potential problems before deciding to continue with due diligence in land acquisition
  • For contractors looking to decide if it’s worth pursuing a tender opportunity
  • For anyone looking for utility information at an entry-level cost
