Vegetation Management Near Overhead Powerlines
Wyndham City Council has contracted Citywide Service Solutions Pty Ltd to Manage its Vegetation Electrical Line Clearance Program.
As part of this program, the street trees and power-lines are inspected regularly to ensure no impact to power supply through conflict with trees.
All vegetation maintenance work is required to be carried out in compliance with the Electrical Safety Act (Electric Line Clearance) 2020 Regulations.
These regulations stipulate a minimum safe clearance between trees and power-lines, to keep re-growth clear of power lines.
Wyndham City Council is responsible for management of power line clearance in the area highlighted in the map below.
The tree works in this area will be carried out over the next four months. Regular auditing occurs throughout the year.
All works will be conducted in accordance with the Wyndham City Council Tree Policy 2019.
If you have any inquiries regarding the above please contact Ron Mifsud - Area Leader Arboriculture, Wyndham City Council on 1300 023 411.
Open Space Mowing
Wyndham City Council recognises the increase in vegetation growth throughout the municipality and is working hard to address the situation.
The increased seasonal rainfall, along with high overnight temperatures has created the ideal conditions for grass and weed growth.
We appreciate your patience as we work through the increased demand on services.

Public Art Decommissioning Notice: Paul Johnson & Gail Mason – Hard Copy (2009)
Following an assessment for repair, Wyndham City Council has made the difficult decision to decommission Paul Johnson & Gail Mason – Hard Copy (2009) public art installation at Point Cook Community Centre. The sculpture has suffered stress fractures to the metalwork and has been deemed unsafe.
The artwork features a series of aluminium poles with dichroic glass tops that sway in the wind, reflecting the reeds of the nearby wetlands. The poles are up-lit at night to provide another dimension to their viewing. Council is currently reviewing all public artwork in Point Cook for maintenance and further commissioning opportunities.
In keeping with the artists’ practice, and Council’s commitment to waste reduction and recycling, any parts of the installation that can be re-used will be repurposed to create new artworks or recycled where possible.
Any responses to the proposed deaccessioning of the artwork may be done so in writing, addressed to Team Co-ordinator, Arts & Culture & Events, Wyndham City Council. Letters can be sent by email to: Donna.Aston@wyndham.vic.gov.au, or by mail to: Donna Aston, Wyndham City Council, 45 Princes Hwy, Werribee VIC 3030.
Letters of response must be received by 14th December to be considered.
