Recessed manhole cover

Hello I have a CATV concrete manhole cover where I’m having a patio built and need to put a recessed cover on it to bed a matching slab in. Is there any problem with this?

Re: Recessed manhole cover

how do you have a cover on your land - thats not normal - you would not normally be allowed to do anything but back to my question how is it on your land

Re: Recessed manhole cover

There’s 3 of them in a row two down the side of the house in our garden and one just past the back of the house in the back garden.

Our garden gate is at the front and we have a side passage way to the garden.

they’ve been there since the house was built and we’ve only just got cable in a few years back. The installers were looking out the front for them and then knocked on the door and asked if I knew where they were

Re: Recessed manhole cover

....I personally think the builders messed up as there is a alley way parallel to our garden path that is access for the next row of houses.

the covers probably should be that side of the fence.

Re: Recessed manhole cover

post a couple of photos - how big are these covers - they sound like access points to the ducts - whatever they are they certainly should not be on your land i think
