Hi, what is the length of the cable (socket plug in) that is supplied with the outlander?

I'm cutting it fine as its on street parking outside my house, and it's 5 metres from wall to kerb

I'll get an outdoor socket fitted at the fence

also bought a traffic cone as the cable will run across the pavement

It is officially not allowed, but it will work well on a 16A extension cord. Note that the box will be about 50 cm from the plug, which will shorten the effective cable length. Your best plan would be to keep the cable and box in the boot and run an extension cord into the car and the charging cable out again, for instance through a partly-open window. It would prevent theft as well.
I charge my car, which is in the drive, through a wall charger and a 20 m charging cable. At work I use the wall socket method.

Not sure where you're based, but it's illegal to run a cable over the pavement in the UK: you're liable if there's any sort of accident. A cone is no use at all, I'm afraid. I assume you'd be allowed to use it after putting it in some sort of cable protector
