Vegetation Management Near Overhead Powerlines

Council has contracted Tree Top Tower Hire to carry out Vegetation Powerline Clearance works in Council’s Declared Area. As part of this program the street trees and powerlines are inspected regularly to ensure no impact to power supply through conflict with trees.

All vegetation maintenance works are required to be carried out in compliance with the Electricity Safety (Electric Line Clearance) Regulation 2020. These regulations stipulate a minimum safe clearance between tree and powerlines, to keep re-growth clear of powerlines.

The tree works in this area will be carried out over the next 14 to 60 days. Regular auditing occurs throughout the year. All works will be conducted in accordance with Council’s Electric Line Clearance Management Plan.

For more information or to find out about Council’s Declared Area, visit or contact Council’s Manager Operations Amber Robinson on 5461 6702.
