Hi everyone.

I am currently wiring a garage that is not joined to the property, its about 12 meters at the bottom of the garden.

The house supply is PME. I have been told by my cps provider that I am not to extend the earth and I must TT the garage.

I have run 6mm twin and earth from a rcd protected 32 amp mcb in the main consumer unit, through the house (the garden is on the other side of the house), through an external wall into a wiska box, then connect up SWA, run underground to the garage into a small consumer unit. I have earthed the armour at the house side. In the garage I have terminated the SWA in a plastic box with a nylon gland, connected it to a short piece of 6mm t and e, run in conduit into the garage cu main switch.

Now my problems begin. As I stupidly ran twin and earth from the board (it was a lot easier and cheaper than getting SWA all the way through the house), I have to keep it RCD protected at the main board.

Obviously I then cannot put an RCD in the garage which is TT'd.

Is it allowed to keep the house end on an RCD and just have a main switch in the garage, even though the garage is TT'd?

Hope this makes sense. Any advice/criticism gratefully received.

Thank you
