Extending Distance between Meter and Consumer unit


I am not an electrician by trade and require some advice please, I got told the maximum distance between the electric meter and consumer unit is generally 2m.

However, I need about 8m from the meter before a suitable location for the consumer unit!

Firstly, can this be done? would it need a sub main? what extra expense is involved in doing it this way ?

Thanks

Stuart

It appears you are writing from the UK. Unfortunately for you, this forum is pretty much US, with some Canadian. I'm afraid you will not get a proper answer here. You need to find a local electrician who can correctly inform you of the code requirements you have to comply with. Sorry.
