Pipeline Easement Permits

Pipeline Easement Permits are issued by Firstgas to authorise and control all works that could damage or endanger a transmission pipeline

The permit sets out the minimum safety conditions applicable to the proposed work which you must adhere to.

Permits are required for all work within a pipeline easement or in the road reserve near a transmission pipeline. We will meet you at the site on an agreed day to locate and identify the pipeline and will then issue you with a permit if it is required. 

It is important to plan ahead allowing at least 48 hours.

NEVER commence work without a permit, or you could be liable for any damage to the pipeline and the surrounding easement.
