Hi Mal,

I have a pre-emptive suggestion.

Often people who do this sort of thing automatically come back with "Very
sorry, but we threw the old brackets away, and it's impractical to make new
ones. So sorry."

And often they get away with it because regulators cannot be too

So, if anyone here knows of local manufacturers who can make the
components, perhaps they could pass names onto Mal to "helpfully" pass on
that info to the regulator.

The point being that usually whoever gets to the regulator first usually

Even if you just write back, ostensibly, to thank the regulator, you could
add something like: "Fortunately in this case, it is really cheap and
practical to restore the original poles, and there are plenty of small
Victorian firms who could fabricate the components".
