Re: Removal of catv green box of my land

It would be very unusual if a VM equipment cabinet would be placed on private land. These are normally placed on an established “service strip” on the land adjoining properties. These are also placed with council permits. So you would have to prove this is not the case with yours.

Cabinets are not normally moved unless there are serious issues, & then usually at the expense of the person wanting them moved.

Thanks for your post on our Community Forums @Shaw2, and a very warm welcome to you!

 

Do you possibly have any pictures of the cabinet so we can investigate this? 

 

Kindest regards,

If this a street cabinet that you're enquiring about, I'd recommend a read of the following previous thread on the same subject.

Thank you, I have already spoken to council and they have confirmed it is not a service strip and definitely my land

Re: Removal of catv green box of my land

That strip could be highway land. The Highway Authority has a public right of way for the surface and as much of the subsoil as is necessary for the control, protection and maintenance of the highway, and the boundary of the highway could well be the fence, hedge or wall running parallel with a road. I strongly suspect that VM, or its precessor company, had every right to install the cabinet.

Re: Removal of catv green box of my land

Thank you, I’ve checked already and it isn’t highway land. I’m more trying to find the right dept, email or phone number for virgin to request removal. While I appreciate your input I have paid for legal advice and received communication from the council already as BT asked me the same questions. I am aware it is incorrectly positioned on my land
