Virgin Green Box outside property (eyesore)

green box 2.jpg
Is it possible to have the Green Box moved from outside my property?  Every dog that passes by stops to use it as  a toilet and whilst the dog has stopped,  the person walking the dog stands and stares into my living room.  We are having our drive landscaped so we can fit our car onto the drive. What should we do with the green wire that is running over the garden on top of the soil ?
Any help appreciate

Hello

I am afraid that if you want to get the VM green box moved, you will be looking at quite a hefty bill in the 10's of thousands. VM would have been given permission to place the box there by the council which is sighted in a public place designated for services.

VM can certainly come out a rebury the cable for you.

Disappointing - not sure why someone would put the box right in front of someone's front window.. When if it had been put 2feet to the left it wouldn't have been seen by either property owner. 

 

How do we get the wire reburied?

Since signing up with Virgin we haven't been able to speak to anyone!! Tried by phone, tried by text messaging (joke) tried by email.. So not sure we will ever get anything done -

As the cabinet is not a health or safety issue VM will not move it.

They will probably move the cabinet for you if you have the odd £100,000.00 lying around.

As long as you don't mind paying for the entire customer base in your street to be rewired, including having their gardens dug up. Box relocated, pavement & road dug up so that service tees face the correct way, plus all the compensation for disruption to services.
