Consent and access

Disputes resolution process

There is a third party disputes resolution process available if required.

If the work proposed at your place has been classed as a category 1 build, or you disagree with our decision regarding a category 2 build objection, in some instances you are able to take the matter further.

Why has work started when I haven't given my consent?

If the work we’re doing has been classed as category 1 or category 2, you will have received notice of the work including an approximate time frame of when work would begin. Under the Telecommunications Act, consent is only required for category 3 builds. If you believe the work at your property was classed as category 3 but you haven’t provided consent, please contact us.

Is the work Chorus needs to do going to cost me or my neighbours anything?

In most cases, no. Some apartment buildings and shared driveways do require work outside of a standard residential install and, in those cases, a contribution to the costs is required.

I’ve ordered fibre. Why do my neighbours have to be notified about this?

To get you connected, we need to bring our fibre network through areas of property that are shared with your neighbours. Because they have a stake in these common areas, by law we need to let them know what work we’re planning to carry out.
