Intention to grant easement - corrective action of granting an easement to Powerco at Clearview Reserve

Palmerston North City Council, being the administering body for the reserve being part of Clearview Reserve (Pt Lot 1 DP 69185), intends to grant an easement for the right to convey electricity to Powerco Limited.

Make a submissions by 27 May 2021

The existing utility services include a transformer and associated services such as underground cables at Clearview Reserve, supplying electricity to Clearview Drive, is owned by Powerco. These utility services were established within the reserve land in 2003 as part of the Clearview Drive Subdivision, but there is no easement registered.

In 1968 the Electricity Act provided the legal basis for utilising land for the purposes of conveying electricity. In 1977 this method of utilising land in reserves for the purposes of conveying electricity was superseded by the Reserves Act 1977.

In recent years Powerco has been bringing the legal status of all their electricity conveyance utilities in line with the Reserves Act, including the establishment of easements when required.

Council does not believe that there will be any effect on the public use of the land or on the public right to walk through the accessway.

Any person or organisation may object or comment on the proposal to grant the easement.  Those making a submission or objection should do so in writing and specify whether they wish to appear before and be heard by a Council committee in support of their submission or objection.  Please forward all submissions to:
