NEC & Tower Permits

I know it's a good idea, but did anyone ever have a tower permit denied
because it was within falling distance of electrical lines >250V?

The local building inspector cites NEC 810-13, something that the tower
cannot be within falling distance + 2' of power lines.

County zoning thinks it's okay if 2/3rds of your tower falls on the
neighbor's property, but the township doesn't want it near any power

Again, yes, it's a good idea, but is it really "code"?  (I don't have
the NEC handy to determine if what his says is valid or correct.)

Comments?  Help?  Ideas?
