Working near Network assets

Close approach consents

In the interests of safety, if you want to work within four metres of our overhead power lines, you must first contact us and apply for a Close Approach Permit.

The minimum safe approach distance for any mechanical plant or scaffolding is four metres.

We will visit your work site, review your procedures and proposed work, and may permit a lesser distance if we’re satisfied safety will not be compromised.

High load permits

If you plan to move any tall structure like a house, boat, wine tank, log hauler or irrigation boom, you must first apply in writing for a high load permit so we can check your proposed route and see if it’s clear. We’ll then advise you accordingly.
