Hi Thomas,

As I recall they were amended (increased distances + several years re-growth) 
a few years back as we experienced trees that had never been in the firing 
line before requiring cutting within the wayleave.

From memory it was to do with making less frequent return visits as much to 
do with H&S (don't have a reference though I'm afraid).

Try the National Grid - they are working under the large HT towers that run 
through our Borough at the moment.

PJ.

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
