Easements are an area of land with a specific use, often for services, such as stormwater drainage or power lines. Each easement has restrictions placed upon it by the consent authority that has caused the creation of the easement such as Council, a developer and or a utility provider.

Council only allows development over easements to which it is the consent authority, if it can be shown with good reason that the purpose for which the easement was created is no longer valid.
