How to report an outage
Please note: We are unable to provide any advice relating to NZECP 34:2001. However, we can provide confirmation of the circuit voltage(s) for the lines you're looking to build near, so that you can use NZECP 34 to self-assess.
Before digging for any reason, you must request underground cable plans through beforeUdig, then establish the location of buried services before commencing excavation. Find out more here (opens in new tab).
No contact required
Based on the information provided, the proposed construction will be compliant and you may therefore proceed without further advice in respect of build distances.
⚠️ You'll still need to apply for a Close Approach Consent prior to erecting any structure that could involve working within 4 metres of our power lines.
Plans should be uploaded for your request type.
Please note that decisions are made at our discretion and permission may be revoked at any time for any reason.
