Welcome to the Aveley Neighbourhood Policing Team pages.

It isn’t always possible to predict, however, here are some precautions you can take if you do have a power cut: 

If you have contacted us about a power outage, when the problem is fixed and the power comes back on, we’ll call you the next day to ensure that everything is working as it should be and that you don’t have any problems.

After the Second World War the population grew rapidly as the area absorbed some of the London overspill.

The club played at Lodge Meadow until moving to Mill Field in the 1951–52 season, at which point they gained the nickname the Millers.[2] The new ground was opened with a local derby match against Grays Athletic.[5]

We are committed to making your neighbourhood a safer place to live, work and visit and will work with the community and our partners to tackle local problems. Aveley is part of the Thurrock district and covers areas including Aveley and Uplands.

Customers often ask us why their power goes off, but their neighbours’ power stays onWe supply power to your home or business at low voltage, either 230 or 400 volts. Power does not travel very far at these voltages, so we bring the power to your area at much higher voltage, usually 11,000 volts. We reduce the voltage in local substations and deliver the power to you through underground cables, overhead lines, or a mixture of both.

The parish church (St. Michael's) is a Grade 1 listed building that was built in the 12th century.[5] It contains the 14th century memorial brass of Radulphus de Knevynton which is echoed in the arms of the Thurrock unitary authority. The church was declared unsafe in the 19th century, with the recommendation that it should be pulled down. However, the parishioners raised £1,000 and saved the structure.[6]


Underground cables are normally reliable if they are not disturbed. Common causes of cable faults included vibration, subsidence and other companies digging nearby. Any damage to the cable allows water in the ground to get in and cause a breakdown. It may be months before the problem gets bad enough to cause a power cut.

How your property is connected to our networkWe usually use four wires for low voltage distribution. Three are live, called phases, and one is the neutral. Domestic customers get their electricity from one of the three live phases and the neutral. We aim to connect an equal number of houses to each phase, although this might be randomly applied in a street.

Faults on low voltage underground cables can often be intermittent and very hard to find. If we can replace the fuses successfully it is usually because the heat from the fault has resealed the cable. We can only use our fault locating equipment once the fault has become permanent. 

Surgery  open 9am – 6pm , except Thursdays when the surgery closes at 1pm

Are you a registered patient at the practice?: Yes

Sometimes we may need to switch off your power while we work on electricity cables nearby. For example, we could be replacing or repairing an underground cable or equipment that is old or damaged. Or we could be making changes to overhead lines because one of your neighbours has asked us to. For our engineers to carry out this work safely, we have to switch off the electricity supplies serving the area.

Telephone lines open 8am – 6pm Mon to Fri except Thursdays when the surgery closes at 1pm.

Aveley is the home of two non-League football clubs; Aveley, who play at the Mill Field and Thurrock who play at Ship Lane.
