I want to run a SWA cable to a detached garage, but I'm unsure where I stand in terms of regulations when it comes to the physical installation of the cable. As it stands, I'm slowly replacing the garden path to the detached garage, and the plan is for the cable to be installed via direct burial under the new path as this is the most direct route between the house and garage. The question is, can I install the cable now whilst the ground work is in progress, and get the work signed off when the cable is wired up, or will the physical installation of the cable need to be signed off, even if it remains physically disconnected? I am considering as an alternative installing conduit so the cable can be installed at a later date. Would the conduit installation need to be signed off as part of the work or can I go ahead and install it without restriction?
