As of the 1st February 2020 Western Power’s Switch Board requirement for Strata Subdivisions has been updated. There is now a requirement to supply and install a Switch/Distribution Board for all survey and built strata developments, including two lot subdivisions as outlined in Western Powers Guideline.

Choosing a suitable position for a new power dome (pillar) now requires more careful consideration as Switch/Distribution boards can dominate the streetscape. As per the image below our client opted to paint the Switch/Distribution board to match the abutting fence and be less noticeable.

For further information on how this may affect your subdivision please contact us.
