Stage 3a - Pre-application

You can click through these bubbles to navigate to each Stage. 

This stage is optional, as it is not a requirement of the National Electricity Rules (NER). 

 After completing Stage 2 – Enquiry and receiving an Enquiry Response Victorian Planning & Connections (VP&C) a Pre-application stage.

Pre-application provides more detailed analysis for your proposed connection, greater understanding of the overall application process and early engagement and planning of your project with VP&C stakeholders and any early assistance with modelling requirements, if required.
