Note

1. All activities or buildings within the Electricity National Grid Corridor shall have the activity class identified above, except where the class of the activity or building is more restrictive within the relevant zone or city wide rules, in which case the more restrictive activity status shall apply. Where Electricity National Grid Corridors for different lines intersect, the most restrictive Corridor will apply. Where an activity is not identified above, it shall be controlled by the relevant zone and city wide rules.
2. The controls within the Electricity National Grid Corridors do not apply to sections of a line which have subsequently been placed underground, or removed. In such cases the relevant zone and city wide rules will apply.
3. The operation, maintenance, upgrading, relocation or removal of an existing electricity transmission line and structures is largely controlled by the Resource Management Act (National Environmental Standards for Electricity Transmission Activities) Regulations 2009, separate to this District Plan.
4. The installation and operation of telecommunications facilities (antennas and cabinets in the road reserve) is largely controlled by the National Environmental Standards for Telecommunications Facilities (2008), separate to this District Plan.
5. 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 any construction, buildings, excavation or other work on or near an electric line.
6. 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.
7. Network utilities that transmit radiofrequency fields or emit electromagnetic fields shall comply with the relevant New Zealand Guidelines or Legislation.
8. Network utilities that emit electro-magnetic fields shall comply with the relevant International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) Guidelines.
9. Consultation with Transpower New Zealand Limited (or its successor) is advised when considering development within the High Voltage Electricity National Grid Corridor. Transpower New Zealand Limited will be an affected party for any development requiring resource consent under or adjacent to high voltage transmission lines.
10. For any activity not identified above, see Section 1.1.8.1. ​
