When planning for subdivision electricity, you will need to make sure there will be an adequate electrical infrastructure. This infrastructure must enable a proper supply of electricity to all lots and public lighting.
Planning for Subdivision Electricity
Before you can get electricity to your subdivision, there are several steps you must take. Below, you will learn more about the process and conditions that must be met.
When planning for a subdivision, you will have to submit a subdivision application, development application, and building application to your local council. During the approval process, the council may require conditions of consent.
If they do, you must meet the conditions before you can proceed. The first condition the council will often impose is you must obtain a Notification of Arrangement (NOA) from your electricity network authority.
What is a Notification of Arrangement (NOA)?
To get a Notification of Arrangement, you have to work with your electricity provider. The arrangement lets the council know that you have made the proper arrangements to supply the subdivision with electrical service. It also states that you have met the costs and other servicing requirements.
The notification of arrangement will be granted to you once you have met all the requirements of the network authority provider. After you have the NOA and have met all the mandatory conditions of the local council, you can register your subdivision plan with the Land Titles Office. Finally, you will be able to continue with the development.
Actions Required for Setting Up Your Electrical Subdivision
Below, you will learn the steps you must follow to get subdivision electricity.
The first thing you need to do is fill out an application. Once the application has been completed, you will return it to the energy network authority along with the applicable administration fee.
After the network authority receives the application, they will review it. They will examine the area and determine if any work needs to be performed to service your proposal.
2. Determination of Method of Supply
If the network authority determines that work needs to be done before the NOA is issued, they will issue a Supply Offer. The Supply Offer will indicate what requirements need to be met.
If no work needs to be performed. The network authority will grant the notification of arrangement.
3. Connection Works Requirements
When planning the subdivision, always remember that each lot must have an unobstructed frontage to the distribution network connection point. There cannot be any encroachments onto other properties.
4. Request for Notification of Arrangement (NOA)
Once all the requirements of the network authority have been met, they will issue the NOA.
5. Request for Early Notification of Arrangement (Early NOA)
Large developers can reduce the amount of time they spend finalising subdivisions by requesting an early notification of arrangement. Network authorities may issue the NOA if the developer meets all the following conditions:
- Have at least 80% of the electricity network (connection works) constructed.
- Provide a copy of the Level 1 ASP quote for the construction work for setting the value of the bond.
- Confirm unconditional transfer of assets to Endeavour Energy.
- Pay an early notification bond equivalent to 100% of the construction
