They recommend that grey is used as Neutral with appropriate sleeving whenever a 3 core / 3 phase 'new' colour cable is used for e.g. a fan isolator or SWA supply etc...

 

It also keeps consistent with the original colours where L3 would have been Blue but is now Grey.

Yes. It just goes to a cable (not sure what this cable is called) with a 16 amp plug on it that goes into a socket outside the house

The brading of the SY should be earthed at the supply end as a minimum, when ever I've used it I always deck both ends but would never rely on it as the only earth for what the cable is supplying (if 230v)

Same here but site spec trumps unfortunately. It was only for a signal wire and the project Engineer missed it and ordered (and ran) 600m of it before it was picked up.

My bad, just dug out the old e-mails and the guy/company that designed the controller for us specced and installed SY, site over ruled it saying there was an issue with it regarding the metal content and damage on the tray-work? We removed it all and installed SWA in the end, not the other way around.

 

It was a site specific specification requirement  iirc (NG Bailey was the PC)
