Cant fit smart meter

According to the requirements i cant have a SM because there isnt enough space round the meters, from what I can gather the answer is just tough luck as no one will pay for the mods required?

There is a standard specification that says how much space should be available. This might vary for each DNO but typically we’re talking the size of a standard meter box. It’s the customers responsibility to provide the meter box, the DNO and supplier simply install their equipment inside it. If you don’t have this amount of space available then it’s up to you to provide it, meaning someone will pay for the work required - you.
