I was just about to post mine when I saw the other post and this is a related topic.
We have power lines running behind our property which are about 7 meters from the back of the house.
The station holding the lines is smack bang in the middle of our view down the courtyard and only around 10 meters from the house sandwiched between the house and the outbuildings.
Whilst I suspect it would be an uphill struggle to get the line moved, is there such a thing as being far too close to an actual property and as such being an actual danger to the property itself and therefore provides a good case for moving the lines?
During storms, the power cable itself has been hit on at least 3 occasions now (in fact, we have had only 3 major storms and each time the power line has been struck) and we loose all our electrics with a bang.
There is a neighbours property that also has a similar problem and they also have a stantion on their land with the cables running around 7 meters from the rear of their property.
The questions are:
in the UK a rent is paid to the landowner to keep a stantion on that person's property. Can this be claimed within Portugal?
also, with this being on our land, are we restricted on what we can grow beneath and around the land and, as we are unable to plant any forestry and would we therefore be entitled to compensation from edp?
is this proximity dangerous to the property itself?
I ought to add that these are not the huge power lines with the 'balls' on them - they look like 'local' cables - with 3 cables attached - one at the top and 2 to the sides.
We don't even think that they are the electrical 'feed' to this village and they bypass the village to go over the hill in the direction of Mortagua.
These are the sort of cables that, in the UK, would be buried and therefore not a danger to any property in the way that these lines appear to be.
