Planning and Consents
All construction work is subject to planning and statutory consents. If your project needs planning consents, you will be responsible for obtaining these consents. We ask you to list them for us in your application, making clear any consents that are pending which you will be obtaining. From our side, we’ll work with the appropriate bodies to ensure that we have the necessary right and permissions to proceed.
Consents impact your securities. You can model them in ConnectNow’s Research Assistant.
Enabling works are the minimum works required to connect you to the transmission network. Beyond these, more transmission reinforcement works may be required. If so, your connection may be constrained at times until these works are complete. You will have the option for your enabling works to be greater in scope, meaning you’re constrained less once connected, but this may mean you don’t connect as quickly.
