It has a lowered curb. It is one big Lowered curb between my parents drive and the neighborughs. There is a post / wall between the two but the box was placed in from of my parents private house / drive.
Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums. It's great having you on board with us in the Community.
I'm sorry to hear that one of our cabinets is causing an issue.
When we acquired the relevant permits, in order to gain these we would have had to supply our build plans as part of the planning permission process.This includes the exact location, specifications, if we need to dig, the route we'll be taking if so and the list goes on. As we were granted the permission, this means the decision laid with the council as the land where we've placed the cabinet is owned by the council.
If this isn't the case, then Wayleave would have been needed and therefore it would never of been placed without an agreement in place.
I can certainly escalate this to the teams however it's very unlikely we would move the cabinet at our expense.
I have sent you a private message asking for some information. I will also need some pictures showing the placement of the cabinet, the driveway and where the obstacles lay. Just click on the little plum envelope at the top right hand side of the page to access your inbox.

Hi kath, I now have the pictures and I will send under seperate cover to you. To confirm to you the house was purchased in the 80’s. Prior to the box being there.
No paper work has ever been signed and i have checked my parents paperwork and the VM box is directly outside their land to which VM have never had their permission to do so.
Please can you me provide with a copy of the documentation that you feel provides you with the right to take the action you have without consent so I can take forward.
I note your comment re 6inchs ot more. The offer of 6 inches was to aid your company as I suspect the box should have been placed in front of the next door neighbours house as it is council owned. Though now I feel you may need to move this further then if its proven that VM have made a mistake. As you say it is the same cost.
I would like this request now to be treated as a formal complaint and therefore I would also appreciate a copy of your complaints process.
To confirm please can you send a copy of the documents you hold which you feel provides VM with the right to place a VM box illegally outside of my parents property and also VM complaint process.
no but you have not given any reason to think it is blocking access its at the side of the drive. Only way to know would be to post a picture. Without it we can only assume the council allowed it to be placed where planning permission allowed.
