    They will have their own in house agents. I'll ask Mrs B for you - utilities is one of her specialisms.

    Openreach have their own agents. You'll have an uphill struggle trying to get wayleaves changed.

    How much do they owe you? If it's more than £750 you could try a Winding Up Petition :sneaky: They have 7 days to respond to that or they could be dissolved as a company! Obviously I'd take professional advice on this.

    We've had them wanting to mole a cable in.
    No.
    Hand dig, they ask.
    No.

    600mm deep with twinwall perf pipe at side of it.
    Out of the way and catches water from broken drains.
    They're having a think.

    That I know but it’s actually speaking to someone their end rather than them wanting to email and then palming us off with wanting more information to which they have had several times now , does make you think to cement in there wires under manhole covers !
     
  10. I’ve some contacts in Openreach, I can ask if you want to pm me, will need your wayleave ref if there is one.
    To be fair to BTOR they do this in house and have local engineers survey and visit / send the wayleave. The problem is they are not agriculturally / property minded and look for the shortest route eg across field cutting through every lateral on the way!

    Similar story here, local guy has had a look and was sympathetic. Further up the tree say no to wayleave but I have no contact details for them, a communication company at it's best. I am now thinking of small claim court, does anyone have any experience of this ? thankyou.

    There’s a form online you can fill in reporting poles in the wrong place or such. Might be worth trying that to see what comes back.

    I have spoken to their removal of apparatus office , don’t know what they were called now , off the back of asking them to remove their equipment , they are more helpful than the wayleave office but still ?ucking useless. On asking if it can be removed you get the stock phrase of 'we can go to court to keep it there'
     
  15. Ok, I’ll will see what I can find.
