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.
