What do you reckon to this....
About 3 years ago I built a path outside my house. Because the plastic (partially submerged in ground) gas meter box would have been a trip hazard, we removed the plastic lid, built some support around the gas meter and put a manhole cover on top - all still easily accessible as its only a lightweight plastic lid, but is now level with the pathway.
I get a letter a month ago from the company that maintain the meter saying that it is now unsafe because it is not accessible, likely to corrode, and doesn't meet gas safe regulations. They want Ł1000+VAT to put it right or they will cut me off.
Ive since read the gas safe regulations and it would appear that the worst they could do is ask me not to use it, and I dont have to pay them to do anything as long as it is not posing any immediate danger to anyone! I've written back to them but not heard anything yet.
Anyone ITK got any input?
