Building near powerlines
Ensure your building complies with regulations.
Required clearances between buildings and overhead powerlines must be maintained at all times – buildings that don’t comply are a serious safety hazard and in breach of the law.
Failure to consider overhead powerlines during the planning and construction stages can have expensive consequences and cause delays. It’s your responsibility to ensure your building complies with regulations well before construction commences.
ESV has developed guidelines to assist property owners, surveyors, planners, architects, builders and councils to consider clearance to overhead powerlines when designing and planning buildings, signs and other structures.
