Power line compensation - anyone ever done it?
We have a large wooden post holding power lines at the front of our house with power lines for next door running across the garden. Apparently it's possible to claim compensation from the power distributor for this (basically you get money so you can't then sue if it turns out the power lines have made you ill)

The post itself is a few feet down from a fence post, but it's an utter pain - although the drive is wide, the post effectively nullifies one side of it so you can only get in and out one way and we're continually being blocked on the drive by people parking opposite who think the drive is wide and easy to get off but actually isn't. We asked the power supplier if it can be moved but they refused (even though its on our land) so I'm more than happy to rinse them for any money I can.

I've googled a bit about it, but just wondered if anyone on here had any experience of doing this and has any tips?

Key the cars that park in YOUR way. They'll soon get the message.

I had a telegraph pole on my land and was paid 1.20 per annum. We squandered it every year.

I knew a bloke who had a pylon outside his house when he was growing up - both him and his brother got cancer in their twenties

If you own the property there should be some kind of wayleave agreement in place. Check it out with the company that is responsible for the electricity infrastructure in your area [ this need not be the same company you buy your electricity from ].

Cars were probably quite a bit smaller when the pole was first installed so you might have a case.

yep, i get a princely 9.50p a year for having one in my back garden.

Don't spend it all at once.
