Matt Hurlston of Ray White Carnegie: Looking after the canopies of Glen Eira

By Matt Hurlston

Protecting the local environment is a major concern for many residents of Bentleigh real estate, which is why the Glen Eira City Council wants to insulate low voltage power lines that drape down into street canopies to preserve the trees. 

An application has been made to Energy Safe Victoria to approve insulating batten for use on lines that pass canopies and are more than 300 millimetres away from branches. Glen Eira mayor Cr Jim Magee said that the responsibility falls on the council for cutting and clearing foliage away from high voltage lines. 

"But there are many hundreds of trees where insulating the low voltage line will achieve the right balance between safety and preservation of the tree's foliage and we want the regulator to let us do that. We don't want to see these hundreds of trees butchered," said Mr Magee in a 16 February statement.
