The problem is the box is not on your land but on land owned by your local authority, & they have given wayleave to site the box on the footway outside your house.
The costs involved in relocation will also involve moving some of the street ducting & customers will have to have their cabinet cable drops replaced & possibly their gardens dug up. You will certainly be looking at shelling out several thousand pounds to VM for doing the job.

Ok thanks for the advice I just have to put up with it I should ask for compensation for the inconvenience specially when they keep asking me to move my van that out side over the manhole for the box and that all way seem to ask when I'm off work and in bed lol and I do not get a lot of lying in bed lol it just a pain in the backside thanks
