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 a streetlight

In order to provide a fast, accurate quote and advice on your new connection arrangement we require a comprehensive site plan with details of your current and/or proposed site layout. This includes but is not limited to the following information being clearly marked on your 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)
  • boundary or retaining walls at the side and front of the property - including depth of wall
  • location of items such as letterboxes, garden beds, trees/stumps, driveways, crossovers
  • detail or grades of any major inclines or slopes near the front boundary
  • utility locations for water meters/pipes, gas pipes, sewer mains/connections and access points
  • proposed location of streetlight (if being moved)


The standard alignment for our streetlights is:

  • 2.7m from the lot boundary or
  • 0.7m from the curb on a straight section of road, or
  • 1.0m from the curb on curved sections of road with speed limits of 70km/h or less

If any of the streetlights will be located on water, gas or communications, the utility that owns them will need to approve it. You can find information on their methods in the Utility Code of Practice.

CAD site plan

For applications of 5 or more streetlights you’ll need to include a CAD plan. It helps us better understand your work site and location of assets. We extract data from your plan to assist us with your design.

CAD plan for moving or removing streetlights

For a CAD plan to be accepted it must clearly show:

  • road lines
  • kerb lines
  • lot boundaries
  • streetlight pole locations (latitude and longitude)
