Underground Power (closed)
Please click here to view a map of properties within the Town that do not currenty have underground power. The owners of these properties were urged to complete a short survey to indicate support or otherwise for proceeding with a project to sink power lines in this area.
The undergrounding of power to the final pocket of the Town of Claremont was supported by more than 80% of survey respondents and, as such, the project will commence within the 2017-18 financial year.
Over the coming months, the Town will work with Western Power to develop a scope of works for the project, which is likely to then proceed early in 2018.
