We have general guidelines in place for the notification, assessment, design and approval of development activity. The Power Services Design and Construction Guidelines form the basis of Power and Water accreditation of consulting engineers and contractors.
The guidelines cover general requirements for the design and construction of network assets, documentation requirements and easement guidelines as well as other documents you may find helpful.
It is important to note these documents relate only to the power networks aspect of our business. Different requirements exist for the water services aspect of Power and Water.
