All activities in all zones shall have the status identified in Table 10A.1: Activity Status for Network Utilities. Symbols used in Table 10A.1: Activity Status for Network Utilities have the meaning described in Table 1A.2: Activity Status.
Note: While only transmission and key electric lines are identified on the Planning Maps, works in close proximity to all electric lines can be dangerous. Compliance with the New Zealand Electrical Code of Practice 34:2001 is mandatory for buildings, earthworks and mobile plants within close proximity to all electric lines. Compliance with the Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003 is also mandatory for tree trimming and planting. To discuss works, including tree planting, near electrical lines especially within 20m of those lines, contact the line operator.
