Probably a simple question for people in the know.

We want to extend our driveway to be bigger and wider, but how do we know where the gas main runs at the moment? Is there any detection equipment. We applied for plans but they arent very acurate, and dont tell you exact position or depth.

Is there any detection equipment as im lead to believe they are plastic pipes?

Also are we allowed to lay a driveway over the gas pipe coming into our house?

How deep are these pipes normally laid?

We tried calling brittish gas but they werent very helpful, just quoted on moving the pipe, but we dont know if it even needs moving yet.

Any help appreaciated.
