Hello people,
I'm designing switchgear for a residential estate, of about 60 houses, specifically the protection for the incomer. Is there any provision in the British Standard that advises on diversity for such a large number of household units?

What country is the estate being built?
 
In the UK most DNO's allow 2 or 3 kW per dwelling as long as there is no electric heating.
so 60 x 2 = 120. the next up standard size of transformer is 200kVA.

Can’t imagine electric heating will be a requirement on this one 😂
 
No, but air-con may be an issue. I know the OP says that they use British standards but I think there will be a big difference between a standard UK house and a Kenya one.
