Tree pruning for power line clearance

Cardinia Shire Council has contracted Citywide Service Solutions to inspect and prune street trees growing around power lines to ensure branches do not impact power supply.

All vegetation clearance work must be carried out in compliance with the Electrical Safety Act 1998 which stipulates minimum safe clearance between tree and power lines to keep re-growth clear.

Council is responsible for managing power line clearance in its declared areas of Pakenham, Beaconsfield and Emerald. For information and maps showing Council’s declared areas: Electric Line Clearance Management Plan (ELCMP)

Tree clearance will start in May 2022. Works will be audited and will be compliant with Council’s ELCMP.
