The aims of these changes include, to:
Create a fairer and more equitable system for OSSM owners.• Create less paperwork for OSSM owners.• Increase Council inspections.• Improve Council follow-up on systems that are operating poorly.• Provide better of information/education resources to OSSM owners.• Provide incentives for systems operating well and penalties for systems operating poorly.One of the first steps to enable this to happen is to change the way Approvals to Operate are managed which includes reviewing the fee structure.
Inspections will be programmed by Council. You will receive notice (usually two weeks) prior to the inspection occurring. You do not need to be present but you may be present if preferred. If you wish to be present or have other requirements ie dogs or locked access gate, you will need to contact Council, after you receive notification, to arrange a suitable date and time.
