Council continues to set aside funds for underground power
The Council at its Ordinary Meeting of 26 February 2019 supported a Notice of Motion that funds be included in the 2019/20 budget for the detail design of underground power for the remaining properties in the City with aerial power.
This is supported by the Administration and an amount of $220,000 has been included in the draft budget for next year.
The benefit of this action is that the City of Nedlands will be project ready when Western Power and/or the State Government announces how underground power will be retro-fitted into the future.
It must be noted that the City cannot legally install underground power assets and connect to the grid without the support of Western Power.
Further information in regard to the current funding models, the City's underground power policy and relationship with Western Power can be found in the FAQs on this engagement page.
