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.

Annual Community Satisfaction Survey 2021/22
Wyndham City has engaged Metropolis Research to conduct its Annual Community Satisfaction Survey from Thursday 6 January until Sunday 6 February 2022.
All local governments in Victoria are required to conduct an Annual Community Satisfaction Survey to help understand community needs and to measure satisfaction with a range of Council services. This information informs Council’s planning, service delivery and policy development.
Metropolis Research staff will conduct telephone interviews with randomly selected households across Wyndham. The survey methodology ensures respondents reflect the diverse Wyndham community.
Surveys will take place on weekdays from 11am to 7pm and weekends from 10am to 5pm. Surveys are expected to take approximately 15 minutes and will be made up of 80% mobile phone as the preferred contact and 20% landline. Metropolis Research staff will first let residents know they are authorised to undertake the survey on behalf of Council.
The information you provide will be kept confidential and will not be used for any other purpose. Thank you for your participation in the survey.
