What size of cable do you want verifying?

You need to give more detail.

Basically no as I am not responding to a cryptic post as "Help Please" instead of how to calculate cable size plus I am not a mind reader so more info would be required.

I think it will be not less then 300 mm, because as I understand it will be 1086 A load yes?

No , 543 is his total load ; 15 x 32 = 480 + 63 = 543A

Should be less than 300A with diversity depending on the occupation levels of the log cabins.
More info still needed tho.

I'd like to hear the DNO's reaction to a request for a 300A single phase supply

Could you please confirm if this is for college homework or do you genuinely have this job?

If you are currently learning and been given this as an assignment, you should be able to find the calculations and relevant tables in the books provided by them.

If this is a job you do genuinely have, please refer to your Big Green Book (the latest edition of the wiring regs), I am not intentionally meaning to come across as harsh, but you have made no attempt to come up with an answer.

Now, if you posted your question with all the information then followed by your answer and asked if we could check it is correct, by now you would have had double the response with the correct answer!
