Morning all,


I've been looking up the safe/required clearance from overhead
electricity lines and I can't find anything that actually states what
those distances are. I thought it was 1m from low voltage and 3m on high
voltage lines but this is just from what I've been told in the past and
I've never actually seen it written down anywhere. Does anyone know
where these specifications are written, either in legislation or
guidance from the National Grid?


Thanks in advance,


Thomas Gregory
