Wayleave - removal of electric pole

Post by Jazzyboy » Fri Jan 26, 2018 11:04 am

I have an electric pole at the rear of my bungalow property that carries electric supply to my property, also attached to the pole is a BT phone cable that carries connection to my property and that of the next door neighbour. There is no Wayleave with either BT or the electric supply company. I would like the pole moved to another position on my property or to do away with the pole as the cable for both electric and telephone could now be attached to the property due to a gable end(doing a loft conversion) on the property being of sufficient height and closer to the nearest pole outside my property. On initial contact with BT they want nearly £300 to inspect and assess the issue. I am still awaiting quote/inspection from electric company (suspect this may be £000s). Any good advise welcome

youll have to pay for them to move/remove and you are not entitled to a wayleave - because the apparatus supplies your premises.
