Good morning! I'm new to this group but it looks like a wealth of knowledge so I'm hoping to be able to glean some of it! My partner, who is a recently retired builder, and I are looking to buy our first house together and want a project! The house we are interested in is a new build but unfinished. What puts me off is a large old style steel electricity pylon (PV 70 it says?) that overshadow the house, although it is outside the boundary. The cables run over the land. There is also a wooden pole carrying HV cables i think, which is in the garden. I am trying to find out more about the feasibility of removing the steel pylon and putting the cables underground, but I haven't had much success yet! We don't know whether to put an offer in on the house or not because of this issue. My gut feeling is that it would be too expensive to get rid of the pylon. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of this? I'd be very grateful for thoughts. Thank you.
