Contractors for Openreach have broken into a farmyard away from home and maliciously put a trench in and buried some service completely without authorisation or permission. It does not followed the route that we agreed 2 years ago for a new fibre optic supply and is very likely to get ploughed up when the field is worked this year.

By Monday morning I'm likely to be fully wound up and ready to give Openreach a proper shouting at. Field is heavy clay and due for subsoiling!

You will be even more angry when you try to contact Openreach and can’t get anywhere 🤣

That blue cord looks vulnerable.
 
Please don't get mad - believe me it doesn't help. Get even instead.

" Oh look, someone has left me a length of nice brand new blue rope - I'll just pull it and coil it up - I'm sure I can find a use for it later."

Your agent - yes, Openreach must pay his fees - needs to put in a claim for trespass [say £500 to keep the buggers on their toes] and loss to a valuable crop of grass. Cost of cultivations and re-seeding. Compensation for an underground junction box.

And if Stephensons in York market are your agents, Richard Tasker is an absolutr s**t to utility companies.

Stuff land agents, all that does is give them a fat pay cheque while you end up with the square root of b*gger all. Far more satisfying to rip the whole lot out and dump it at the nearest BT depot/offices.

This is the equivalent in size to all 219 current National Reserves.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
