Can you move an electricity pole in your garden that supplies both your neighbour’s and your property?

This month’s query: Can you move an electricity pole in your garden that supplies both your neighbour’s and your property?
Yes, but we will need to alter the power supply to your neighbour’s property at the same time. This may come as a surprise to them and we will need to discuss this with your neighbour to make sure the works can be completed with as little disruption as possible.

How much will it cost?
Moving any pole can cost a lot of money. As the project is requested by you, the costs will be charged to you.

Also, we may need to seek landowner legal rights which may affect the timescale to complete the work and the price.

How long will it take?
This is a difficult thing to estimate, my advice is to apply early. Once we understand the extent of the work involved and the rights we may need to acquire then we’ll let you know the estimated timescales.

How do I apply?
Simply complete an application form using this link.

Can the power line be buried? It will look nicer.
If the supply needs to be altered we will always look to install new electricity equipment underground. We will describe the options open to you once we receive your application. 

Our top tips
1. Make an early application, this allows us time to gain all the permissions needed to complete the diversion of the power line.
2. Send us a photo of what’s on site with your application, this can prove useful when planning the work.
3. Send us a plan if you can, showing where you want things moved from and installed to.
