Underground Power

The City of Nedlands continues to install underground power across the City with the completion of the West Hollywood project.

The projects in Claremont Triangle and Alfred Road (Town of Claremont project) and Alderbury Street, Floreat (Town of Cambridge project) are now progressing and close to completion.

When these projects are complete 78.5% of the City will have underground power installed to their properties, with a remaining 1,707 properties without underground power in East Hollywood, Floreat and Mt Claremont areas.

The City is now progressing with investigations on progressing the installation of underground power in these remaining properties.

Should the Council consider an equalisation scheme, such that each resident pays the same for underground power. It seems certain wards were prioritised for a lower cost or even free roll out of underground power and have enjoyed this benefit for longer while Hollywood was not prioritised and now must pay full cost for a benefit received for a shorter period.
That said, I am very supportive of underground power.

I am not happy either with having the transformer on my verge.
Are there other options?
At the leat, I would ike to be consulted about the actual location, as I am on corner back.

I do not agree with underground power being funded in this way. Surely it is the job of the council to have in place long term objectives, such as this, which are funded through the already heavy rates without demanding additional funds in this way. In addition to simply dump an extremely ugly transformer box on a front verge is unacceptable when there are plenty of other places it could be put and NOT be a blot on the landscape of the otherwise very attractive road.

The council's objective is to treat rate payers equally, provide amenities, maintain and beautify the city. By placing a large ugly electrical transformer box in front of a house (on the verge) the council is being negligent. It defies logic to take down a overhead power line only to erect a large unsightly transformer box on the verge. This devalues the immediate property and surrounding homes. The transformer boxes would be placed in industrial zones or sump areas or major highways away from residential sites.

I do not agree to the proposed underground power and certainly do not agree to transformers and being placed in front of my property. All transformers should be placed in park areas or industrial sites away from private property.

I do not support Council funding underground power using ratepayer funds. Underground power is a fantastic project but not warranted because the current network of overhead powerlines is functioning fine. I will support the project if it is totally funded by the State Government or funded by the individuals that want it. I would prefer the Council to spend the money on infrastructure, community facilities and safety.
