Covid 19 Notice, 8 January 2021: We are continuing to complete PCE assessments, Connection Application assessment, issue offers, receipt connection payments, as well completing on-site inspections for the specified essential housing development sites that meet the criteria and are included in the approved list of priority sites by the Government. We will continue to take booking for scheduled site inspections at these sites via our email address. We will continue to make connections and support the Government on the sites that meet the criteria and are included in the approved list of priority sites.
