Hi all

 

Just a quick question about the ROW consent rules.

 

I know that the government changed the rules/law in regards to consent for ROW for fibre installs to notify and if there are no objections then the build can proceed. Was this a law change or a recommendation?

 

The reason I ask is that it Enable are still following the old rules/law when it comes to consent. Been trying to sort out the ROW build for my parents since April and they share the ROW with 12 other properties. Got consent for all but one which happens to be an empty section and no one who lives down the ROW has any contacts for the vacant property and Enable said they have not heard back from the owners of that property.  Enable have said it wont proceed until all consents have been received.

 

I have asked Enable when they will be following the new rules/laws and I have been told that they haven't decided when they will implement the change.

Act of parliament (a surprisingly readable example!) http://legislation.govt.nz/act/public/2017/0016/latest/DLM6879734.html

Not correct. Forum software is up to date, and does auto link.

The law was passed and does work, I know because I went through the process after failing before the law changed.

 

 

 

One owner couldn't be bothered responding to consent, so once the new law was passed their continued silence = implied consent and I got fibre.

To answer the legal question, if a fibre company wants to use this new consents law, they need to be a member of the approved disputes scheme (Telecommunications Act 1993 s.155ZH). Since only Chorus is the only member of the scheme, they are the only company allowed to use the new consents procedure.

So it does not auto-link.

Chances are, a 12 property ROW would be a cat 3 install so the new legislation wouldn't apply and consent from all owners would need to be obtained.
