As some of you already know - I've been rather busy of late starting a new project...taking on a derelict farm for demolition & rebuilding.
I'm presently trying to relocate the electric in the cheapest/most effective manner - the option I want to progress is for the electric network supplier (Scottish Power) to relocate our supply onto an existing nearby telephone pole where it can then go underground to the house/barn. From speaking to BT they have no problems with this and are even sending a guy out to look into whether any of their services need alterations to incorporate this change. However, Scottish Power state that whilst BT are allowed to use their poles, they are not allowed to use BT poles.
Has anyone any experience of this? It seems a bit of a mad situation, and I don't know why Scottish Power (with me funding it!) can't just effectively buy the BT pole if need be rather than installing another unsightly pole or digging up the road to install underground lines at a massive expense to myself.
