A manhole cover has appeared on the grass verge adjacent to no 17. The manhole cover is being expanded over the grass verge and is being covered with cement. Has the contractor sought permission from Buckinghamshire Council for this work? This is an area of rural pleasantness which is slowly being eroded by the needs of overdevelopment.. Has the contractor contacted you on this mstter?sof

The mahole cover is unsightly and unnecessary as it is not connected to anything in the houses adjacent to the grass verge. In any event, my question to you is have BT or its contractor contacted you and sought and obtained permission for this work? The manhole has been in place for about 2 months.
