    The leccy board are coming out to move my meter but it is going to be some 10m from the existing CU.
    Whats the correct way to wire
    a/ new tails from isolation switch to CU (15mm or 25mm)
    b/ move CU adjacent to meter/isolation switch and then reconnect all ccts using junction boxes.

    best bet is to fit an isolatr switch with in 1m of the meter.
    Then run a 16mm or better still 25mm, depending on your load, protected cable to the existing CU position!

    To protect the cable you might have to use SWA cable or run it in a conduit of some discription.

    get the electricity company to fit an isolator switch for you at the same time. They ought to do this free but no harm in asking eh?
