Moving brown box

Hello

i need to have my brown box moved in order to facilitate a gas connection. It only needs to move 2m along the house but I don’t need or want any new holes or entrance points. Can this be facilitated by extending the cables etc?

The box covers the hole in the wall, so moving the box will mean it's covering another hole.

It appears my brown box is not covering a hole. My main connection is above into the wall. Obviously I know there are wires in the ground to the box. Maybe this pic will help explain what I need

It won't be difficult to move the box, but remember that the incoming cable is underground at that point. If the gas pipe is coming to the same point there may be a conflict.

Yeah I see where the cable comes into the brown box. The gas work will definitely conflict with it but they have assured me their work is deep and Virgin more surface and they’ll take care.  We will see what happens but it’s the only real place for the gas box to go unfortunately.

The incoming cable will need to be extended, with a cable joint. I suspect this would be best done after the gas pipe is fitted, otherwise it may have to be done twice.

That’s probably a better idea but they won’t situate the gas box there until the Virgin box is moved unfortunately.
