If you are requiring underground electricity to run beneath or along a Council footpath, an applicaiton must be subitted to Council for assessment.
All electricity cables are to be inspected once they have been laid (while the trench is still opened) to ensure all conditions have been complied with. Please note at least 24 hours’ notice is required to arrange an inspection.
Underground electricity isn’t to go under or along a road and is only to travel a short distance. If an applicant wants to cross a road with electricity, they are required to go through Ergon and arrange overhead power. If the applicant wants to travel a distance along a road, they are to put the cable inside their own property (or make arrangements with the property owner – possibly private easement) and only go on Council land from the property boundary to the pole.
Once you receive the approved signed application, only then can work commence
