Re: Dropped kerb.

I am wanting to drop my kerb and I am going to apply for planning permission, there is no box or cover where I want to drop it but there is a channel going across the pavement  in which I believe has vm cables underneath. Would I need somone from virgin to inspect this or will the council deal with this issue? Thanks

Nothing to worry about. If the council had resurfaced the pavement you would not even know it was there. Same goes for the other utilities. Services under loose ground (grass/gravel) is another matter & the council will not normally allow driveways across service strips in these situations.

Unless there is something breaking the surface (access cover or cabinet) don’t worry about it.

Re: Dropped kerb.

Each council is different, contact them first and they will tell you if there is any issues with utility companies. In my case the council came out and told me to contact virgin. Virgin charged me £200 for a survey and said it is fine to proceed. I am now  just waiting to here back from the council. Hope this helps.

Re: Dropped kerb.

Did you not have to pay to have the Virgin chamber strengthened at all?
