Hi Dave, nobody's replied so I will bring my 2pence in. Can't speak for across the water but over here the power line company is to be contacted and maps accessed off them directly. Don't really think its a thing that would be publicly available.

Thanks Alvin, Went to look at them today and could only see one sign that said SEEBOARD- So im guessing now EDF however there was nothing else giving power, contact numbers etc.

 

It has 3 strands off a single wooden post (like a BT pole), I forgot to take any pictures but can anyone hazard a guess at the power of them?

It will most likely be an 11KV. Standard industry advice is no felling within two tree lenghts of the line. If you are not sure about it, get some contractors in to do the felling close to the line.

No felling near lines on wooden poles within 9m or 2 tree lengths or 15m for steel constructions. If its within these distances you need to contact the Network operator who will advise you.

Thanks guys. landowner said they would rather just leave the trees near to the lines rather than faff aound with getting another contractor in to fell them, Wheres the rules on wooden/metal poles?had a look in AFAG 804 but couldnt see it there?

I'm just going to jump in here, this line here I assume is a BT line? There's no sort of conductors that I can see. Plus it's resting in a few trees.

Never assume.

If you don't know the difference then find someone who does.

 

Sent from my Galaxy arse using tupping talk.

Check ALL the simple things first.
