Council is a local water utility under the Water Management Act 2000 (NSW) and is responsible for ensuring any impacts on Council's water and sewer infrastructure are identified and either controlled or eliminated.
If a development is proposed in the Singleton local government area and the result has implications of the water and/or sewerage systems, Council's Water and Sewer Group will assess the application in accordance with the requirements of Section 305, 306 and 307 of the Water Management Act 2000 (NSW) and associated regulations.
Council will issue a Section 306 Notification of Requirements outlining the charges and/or works that the developer must pay and/or construct for the development.
