Nillumbik Shire Council contractors will be undertaking pruning works and possible tree removal around overhead powerlines.

The works will be undertaken in the streets of Eltham, Eltham North, Research, Greensborough and parts of Diamond Creek and Wattle Glen between August 2021 to February 2022.

The works are part of regular maintenance to ensure compliance with the Electricity Safety (Electric Line Clearance) Regulations 2020.

Council is responsible for maintaining a minimum clearance space around the powerlines to avoid the chance of trees contacting powerlines, which could lead to power outages, and in some instances, fires.

Please contact our customer service team on 9433 3111 should you have any concerns.
