Hi Folks,

Can anyone advise any reason why the following wouldn't be possible / permitted.

I have removed the supply for 1st floor lighting and socket circuits (previously bedded into a wall) that I plan on re-plastering (in conduit this time with correct safe zones etc). Is there any reason I cant, beneath the ground floor add a 32A/20A junction boxes ( screwed onto the joists which will allow me to run the supply from the consumer unit at a later date once I have the downstairs floors lifted?

Meaning I can re-wire the whole 1st floor and leave the junction box to consumer unit for a later date?

I think its possible if you use wago connectors.

JBs have to be accessible.

I dont know if work is notifiable or not -if it is you need to get an electrician in first and ask advice on what, if any work he will allow you to prepare for him.

I would use trunking and conduit and a metal enclosure box to prevent mice and rats damage get an electrician to double check do you have three sets of wires ?
