  • Activities on an easement

    There are rules around activities you can and can’t do on and around a Powerlink easement. Some of these rules are set out in the registered easement conditions which are noted on the property’s title. These specifically set out the rights of both the landholder and Powerlink.

    In addition to these registered conditions, there are also other guidelines and rules that are based around:

    • Safety to the public or to Powerlink employees and contractors.
    • Risk of damage to property.
    • The safe operation of the overhead transmission line, underground cable or other assets.
    • Access to the line or associated infrastructure for any future works, including maintenance, upgrading or renewal.

    Activities such as constructing houses, placing obstructions within 20 metres of transmission support structures, and operating mobile plant equipment within statutory clearance distances are all examples of activities which are not allowed.

    If you’d like to carry out an activity on an easement, please call us on (07) 3866 1313 to discuss it first.
