What to include with your application
A site plan
Provides us with an understanding of your work site, the location of existing and new assets and help us to design your product. It will need to include:
- Your property
- Neighbouring properties
- The location of the supply point
Site plan for moving or removing high or low voltage cables
For a site plan to be accepted, it must clearly show:
- the proposed pillar location in a visible colour on the site plan
- the street name on which the property borders
- the full address of the property
- the nearest intersection (for rural properties it helps to locate the site)
Sometimes an easement will be required if the cable will be running through private property - we'll let you know if this is the case.
Your cables need to be installed within 0-500mm alignment from the property boundary.
The minimum depth is 850mm, or 1200mm if in private property,
Cables out of alignment need physical protection installed.
