At Northern Ireland Electricity Networks (NIE Networks), many of our poles, lines and cables are installed on privately owned land. When we install equipment on other people's land we draw up a wayleave agreement with the landowner.
Should we need to install equipment on your land, a member of our wayleave team will contact you to discuss it.
Understanding your wayleave payment
Once a wayleave agreement has been signed you will be issued with an annual payment by cheque (subject to a minimum value of £2.00).
If you’re not sure how this payment is calculated you can download the NIE Networks' wayleave payments information pack [481kB PDF].
