Development Application Referrals

Under the Planning Act 2016, Powerlink can be triggered in certain circumstances as a referral agency for a development application. Powerlink is triggered as a referral agency when planned development will impact upon our assets. Details of the individual triggers can be found in the Planning Regulation 2017.

As a referral agency, Powerlink has the opportunity to assess any potential impacts on existing or future electricity infrastructure resulting from the proposed development. It is vital that the construction of new development in close proximity to powerlines and substations does not jeopardise the safe operation of our network, or the safety of the community.

Purpose of co-use
  1. General Building - shed, pool, awning, fence, etc 
  2. Underground Services - water, gas, sewerage, electrical, comms, etc
  3. Overhead Electrical Undercrossing
  4. Rail and Transport Infrastructure - new rail works or upgrades to existing infrastructure, or new works or upgrades to transport infrastructure such as roads and bridges
  5. Lot Reconfiguration and Material Change of Use
  6. Other - any works not covered in the Purpose of Co-Use options. Alternatively, if you are unsure about the type of application, use this option
