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

Tree Officer
