Renting Council house tennants only

Have any council tennants been requested by the coucil to use their land for use?

Western electricity approached us a few months back proposing a sub station in our garden and we would benefit by having fencing put all around our front garden so we said no.

Today they came back with a small monetry figure.

I was wondering if anyone else was in this situation and what did they benefit from it as our monerty figure seems miniscule

how much did they offer and if its a council house you wont have much choice if they got to the council
#2
I would worry that there could be some risk to health
#3
say no again...they'll come back with more money
#4
i know someone who got 10k for losing part of their garden so council could sell to developers
#5
If i were you, I would avoid it like the plague because of the electromagntic fields that come from substations and overhead powerlines and the potential heath risk.

Have a look at this web page http://www.lhc.org.uk/members/pubs/factsht/52fact.htm

I agree, negotiate! as the property belongs to council/housing association, it may well go ahead.
Try the CAB for advice, however if there is def no risk to your health and it still leave you with a decent amount of space and a fenced in garden, it may be worth haggling. i would haggle at £2000 with a view to accepting not much less.
Go to your local council planning office to see if any plans have been submitted too.

Working in electrical/electronic engineering, I'd suggest the 'information' on that web page is highly suspect.

Oddly, it goes into detail about what it thinks one might find in the home (but with similar figures for appliances operating at wildly differing power levels),

With regard to the subject in this thread, it gives no figures at all about EM field strengths relevant to power generation and transmission at any of the grid voltages.

On top of that, it doesn't give any references for sources and peer reviews of the information about medical effects, so the veracity of the opinion can't be checked.

Hi,
I would advise contacting the CAB regarding this matter, as you may find that they have experience of handling clients who in a similar position have been offered a certain amount of offers similar to yours, refused, and then offered alternative accommodation. It could be that by refusing you are putting yourself in a precarious position.

Say yes, if you can have 20k, free electricty for the time you reside at that porperty and your own tesla tower.
