Why are changes being made to the way Singleton Council undertakes onsite sewage management?
Changes are being made to the way Singleton Council manages onsite management systems to provide a better service to system owners.

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.
