​a)​ ​Aerials that comply with the following:
​i.Any of the elements making up the aerial do not exceed 80mm in diameter;
​ii.For horizontal HF yagi aerials, the maximum element length does not exceed 14.9m, and the boom length does not exceed 13m;
​iii.No part of the aerial (including aerial wires) overhangs a site boundary;
​iv.The setback standards applying to buildings in the applicable General Residential Zone or Future Urban Zone (except that aerial wires are not required to comply with the setback standards);
​v.No part of the aerial exceeds the maximum stated height applying to buildings in the applicable General Residential Zone or Future Urban Zone by more than 2m (except for vertical aerials as provided for in vi below;
​vi.For vertical aerials, one vertical aerial to a maximum height of 20m, provided there is only one vertical aerial or one supporting structure (and attached aerial(s) or antenna(s) under c) below per site that exceeds the maximum stated height applying to buildings in the applicable General Residential Zone or Future Urban Zone by more than 2m.
25.7.6.2.3 Supporting Structures 
​a)​No ​more than six support poles for wire aerials of less than 115mm in outside diameter per site provided:
​i.The maximum height of the support poles is the maximum building height applying in the zone in which they are located;
​ii.The setback and height in relation to boundary standards shall not apply to these support poles;
​iii.Where guy wires are used these must not exceed 12mm in diameter; and
b)One pole support structure (excluding support poles for wire aerials) or lattice support structure per site provided that:
i.​The maximum height of the pole support structure is 9m and the maximum inscribed circle of the pole and any lowering mechanism shall be 600mm below 4m in height and 115mm above 4m; or
​ii.The maximum height of the lattice support structure is 9m and the maximum inscribed circle and any lowering mechanism shall be 900mm below 8m in height and 660mm above 8m; and
​iii.The pole or lattice structure is located in accordance with setback standards applying to buildings in the zone in which they are located. For the purpose of this rule the height in relation to boundary standards shall not apply to the pole or lattice support structure; and
​iv.Where guy wires are used these must not exceed 12mm in diameter; and
​v.At no point must any guy wire overhang the boundary.
​c)For each site, one support structure can exceed the maximum stated height applying to buildings in the applicable General Residential Zone and Future Urban Zone by more than 2m, provided that:
​i.The maximum height of the support structure and any attached aerials or antennas is 20m;
​ii.The supporting structure may be one of the following:
​1.A guyed mast. The maximum inscribed circle of the mast below 9m shall be 1000mm, and above 9m shall be 115mm; or
​2.​ A guyed lattice mast. The maximum inscribed circle of the mast below 9m shall be 1000mm, and above 9m shall be 300mm. The mast may be of constant width or tapering; or
​3.A self-supporting lattice mast. The maximum inscribed circle of the mast below 9m shall be 1000mm, and above 9m must fit within a tapering envelope with a maximum inscribed circle of 660mm at 9m and 420mm at 20m; or
​4.A self-supporting tubular mast. The maximum inscribed circle of the mast below 9m shall be 1000mm, and above 9m must fit within a tapering envelope with a maximum inscribed circle of 230mm at 9m and 115mm at 20m.
​iii.There may be local enlargement of support structure to accommodate a rotator mechanism;
​iv.The supporting structure is located in accordance with setback standards applying to buildings in the applicable General Residential Zone or Future Urban Zone. For the purpose of this rule the height in relation to boundary standards shall not apply to the supporting structure;
​v.Where guy wires are used these must not exceed 12 mm in diameter;
​vi.At no point must any guy wire overhang the boundary.

25.7.6.3 Temporary Diesel-Fuelled Generators

Temporary Diesel-Fuelled Generation Activities, including associated transformers and fuel storage tanks shall:
​a)Produce no greater than a combined output of 10MW per site;
​b)Operate for no longer than 6 months in any calendar year.
