Wayleaves & Easements

Wayleaves & Easements

Without the appropriate consents and land rights a Network Operator will not adopt or energise a new connection. But achieving consents on time and on budget calls for technical and commercial acumen plus lots of experience. It requires rigorous planning and project management, abundant stakeholder contacts and the soft skills necessary to get the best results.

Roadnight Taylor’s team is skilled at managing this process on your behalf and has a wealth of experience in working alongside clients’ legal advisors to negotiate and secure appropriate terms.

What we do

  • Early engagement with Network Operators to understand their requirements in relation to the project, to aid in navigating the consents process and to avoid issues that might otherwise arise later in the project.

  • Management of on-site consents such as Freehold or Leasehold Transfers for substations and switching stations, easements for cables, poles and overhead lines, and rights of way for Network Operator access.

  • Identification and engagement with third-party landowners including referencing, identification of third-party and private landowners, and negotiations to secure consents.
