Members are advised that if they are approached by utility companies regarding underground electricity cables then they should be aware that although negotiations are ongoing, nationally recommended payment rates have not been agreed and are subject to individual negotiations.
Telecommunications and Fibre Optic Cables
There are no nationally recommended payment rates for fibre optic/telecommunications cables, either overhead or underground. We are aware that landowners are currently being approached regarding the installation of fibre optic/telecommunications cables, particularly along the Beauly Denny line. Members are strongly advised to take professional advice before signing.
