No Go Zones

No Go Zones is an initiative to help everyone keep a safe distance from electricity, wherever they work.

The No Go Zones initiative, which is supported by United Energy, provides a set of guidelines for workers who are not working for the licensed electricity distribution or transmission companies to safely work around electricity infrastructure.

Remember, before you start work near our overhead or underground network, you may need a Permit to Work from us. If required, this permit will detail the conditions and methods you must adhere to in order to carry out your work. We’ll only issue a permit either after we’ve visited and assessed your work site or when renewing a permit that meets strict criteria.

To determine if there are underground assets, before breaking earth always contact Dial Before You Dig on 1100 or by visiting

Apply for a No Go Zone Assessment

When we receive your application, we will assess it to determine if a site visit and permit to work is required. Please note our application assessment timeframes are subject to volumes and specific site locations. If applicable, timeframes and costs (quote estimate) will be discussed with you at the site visit.

** Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, it may take longer than normal to process your No Go Zone application. Please allow up to 5 business days for a response.

If your application relates to vegetation clearing, please allow up to 10 business days for a response and a further 4 weeks for works to be completed.

When a quote is required, please allow up to 6 weeks.
