  1. Thank you for all your replies, lets just hope they put some sort of wooden house over the sub station.

  2. Hi

    One of the cheifs from EDF was outside, so have been speaking to him. Seems that the substation is where it is for easy access, I asked about if it was possible to place a wooden frame with a roof  around it as they have done on some others ( i live in the alps) its down to the commune, though the commune have told me its down to EDF. When asked why did you not place the cables undergroud, he rubbed his fingers and said we dont have the money to.

    Will the cables ever get burried he said yes but when he has no idea, it all seems to be about money and the lack of it.

    I just thought at least they would of told us of the plans before actaully doing the work.

    Regards

  3. Hi Guys

    Thanks for the reply, what has actaully happened is that they are replacing an exsisting larger and taller sub station that was hidden behind trees, now they have built a smaller sub station which is in total view.

    The pilon they have put up is again replacing an old smaller one which again was hidden, but now this pilon is taller, bigger in width and not hidden.

    The road in front of me is a small single road which comes of the main Route on which they have burried all the cables.

    Regards

  4. Hello

    Not sure if this is the right section to post in. EDF have decided to place a new substation  about 35 meters away from our house and then also place a concrete pilon directly in front of our house across the road which is only 7 meters wide., so as you can imagine very close and not nice to look at.

    My question is: are they allowed to do that with out even telling us there plans and if we would mind that our view from our property will be altered, should we have been told via the local Marie and had the chance to see if the substation could of have been placed  somewhere that was hidden from view.

    Look forward to any help on this matter

    Regards

  6. Hi, I am thinking of selling my chalet which I have run as a catered chalet for the last 5 years, when it comes to selling the property it will be 6 years old. I am a sarl and vat registered . If I include vat in the sale price can someone claim back the vat if they intend to run it as a business and are a vat registered company even though the chalet is over 5 years old.

    Kind regards

  7. Hi Guys

    Been having a look at baby shops in France, but am noticing a massive difference in price between the same items if purchased in the UK or France. The prices in France seem to be extremely high compared to that of the UK, and that's not even taking into consideration the current exchange rate. Even if the exchange rate was £1 = EUR1.45, the price in Euro's for most items are still very expensive. I am looking at buying things like electric steriliser, baby monitor, cot and changing table, bedding....etc.

    Have tried Autour de bebe and Bebe 9. Does anybody any other suggestions?

    Any help would be much appreciated.
