Some of you may remember a discussion I had on this forum some time ago regarding my wiring of a stable. The general opinion was that they would burn down, soon after the horses and anyone within a 10 mile radius was electrocuted. Now so far none of this has happened. Now my point was that as the part p didn't apply to stables, and as the regs aren't a legal requirement I could wire them myself, all be it to the relavent regs requirements re installation and testing. Now if it was a shop or factory I assume the Electricity at Work Regs would apply. The stables are purely for personal use, not commercial. Then the other day I had a thought. When I applied for the electricity supply I was told it had to have a proper address, so I rang local council, who said no problem, it will take 10 minutes, and so it did! Only problem was I then got a council tax bill, back dated 3 years! Plus it was rated as a commercial building. When I pointed out that it wasn't commercial, they said there were only 2 rates, domestic or commercial. As it happens I get 100% rate relief, so don't pay anything, but here's the point, as it is rated as a commercial premises, should the EWR now apply? Just interested what others think. Don't really care, just interested.
