Green box in way of driveway

  • We are not a virgin customer but have a virgin green box right in our driveway which we struggle to get cars on and off because it’s in the way. How do we go about getting it removed.

Re: Green box in way of driveway

Replies to similar posts in the past suggest this is unlikely to be possible.  In the rare situation when it is possible the cost to you is likely to be many thousands of £.

Re: Green box in way of driveway

Could you post a picture?

A cabinet wouldn't intentionally be placed 'right in our driveway'.

Re: Green box in way of driveway

The box was moved from a public footpath to right in front of my house though. Is there nothing we can do ?

Re: Green box in way of driveway

thats not on your drive way. you have just modified your drive. Its not on the lowered curb.

VM are unlikey to move it as it can clost £10,000's and will take down everyones service connected to it.

Re: Green box in way of driveway

Looking at the picture I would be amazed if the box had been installed there after you had your front garden blocked over.

If that is the case then VM need to deal with it.

Re: Green box in way of driveway

@Graham_A i disagree. the kerb has not been lowered so that is not in front of the "drive"

Re: Green box in way of driveway

@apcyberax  I think we are on the same page here.  The box appears to pre date the block paving of the front garden.

Re: Green box in way of driveway

looks like it. I wouldn;t expect it to of been installed like that unless the house had a wall or hedge. But bottom line its perfectly legal and not blocking the drive as the drive is legally only were the drop curb is. and to get the curb dropped now will involve the op having to arrange the box to be moved
