Mae'r ymateb i'r cais hwn yn hwyr iawn. Yn ôl y gyfraith, ym mhob amgylchiad, dylai National Grid plc fod wedi ymateb erbyn hyn. (manylion). Gallwch gwyno drwy yn gofyn am adolygiad mewnol.

Dear National Grid plc,

Can you please confirm if an inspection has been completed and the conditions met for residents to live approx 15ft under pylon cables in WD6 5JL area.

We have been advised that a condition has been met for workers to be under these cables & pylon but was also advised that an investigation had to be completed as the planning application shows residents living (very dangerously) directly under these lines.

If an investigation has been completed can I have the outcome and a copy of the report.

Yours faithfully,
T Hoy

Sent request to National Grid plc again, using a new contact address.

Dear National Grid plc,

I requested information regarding what the rules are for humans living under power lines, what the safest maximum measurement is for a human being to stand under a live electric power line/cable?

I have not received a response within the agreed period therefore could you please respond as a matter of urgency.

Yours faithfully,

T Hoy

Dear Lynall, Rachel,

Thank you for your email. Unfortunately it does not answer my original question, which is what are the safety clearance measurements for humans to live under live cables? I have the information regarding EMF emissions but thank you for re-conforming them. My original email is below:-
