Catv cover - How do I check if Manhole Cover needs to be moved

Dear Virgin

I am interested in having the kerb dropped outside my house. However 2.5m away from where the first ramped kerb is due to be located is a manhole cover. ie. the cars would not be passing over the manhole cover but would be passing over an area 2.5+ meters away.

My council have asked for verification from the utility company who owns it that it is ok for us to continue the work or find out if it needs to be moved.  I think it belongs to Virgin, only because we have a virgin connection directly in line with this cover going into our house. 

Who do I need to contact in order to find out whether or not this cover needs to be moved and if it is ok for us to carry on with our work.

Many Thanks for your help

Kelly

Virgin charge for this, it's about £300 I think, moving the cover could be very expensive

to clarify, the £300 is for the work to check if it'll be a problem.
the actual work to move would be in the thousands.
