Easements ensure the safety of residents living, working, and playing near powerlines. They help prevent incidents occurring that could cause serious injury or even death.

Easements are also created to provide clear, 24-hour access to infrastructure. It is important to keep easements clear at all times so regular maintenance, line upgrades, damage or technical faults can be attended to immediately.

Download our Living With Electricity Easements and Infrastructure brochure for answers to some of the most common electricity easement questions.

In regards to development, electricity easement requirements will be determined during the design information process. Read our policy for easement requirements.
