We are responsible for maintaining and clearing vegetation around the network. This includes powerlines located on private property, or public land.
We must clear vegetation on public land or within the boundaries of private properties. Clearing helps reduce the risks associated with electrical line. These works must be done to maintain the required clearance space around power lines as well.
Individual properties that need clearing will receive written notice at least 14 days’ notice before any clearing works.
For more information about the proposed pruning or clearing, please contact our Customer Service Centre on 1300 360 795.
