In addition, the maximum distance permitted by most DNOs for meter tails is 3metres. Any more than that and you would require SWA cable and a switch fuse. As above, you'll need a competent electrician to design and install this, also to co-ordinate with the DNO for the seals at the cut out to be removed and the service fuse removed, unless you happen to have an isolator already fitted.

So, not a DIY job on many fronts. Find an electrician at Home - https://www.electricalcompetentperson.co.uk

And if its an existing consumer unit, you may need a load of twin and earth or whatever cable is used to supply the circuits fed from the board as they could potentially need extended now to reach the new board.
