Code Powers

As far as I'm aware council's can't prevent utilities digging up pavements as they have "code powers". That includes VM.

The council does have powers over the placement of cabinets, but even then those have limits.

Of course, planning issues are a useful excuse for utilities not to continue with projects which they don't deem to be remunerative.
