Public Exhibition: Draft Development Servicing Plans for Water Supply and Sewerage

Consultation has concluded

Securing water supply for the Coast. New section of water infrastructure.

The Water Supply and Sewerage Development Servicing Plans (DSPs) detail the developer charges that are required to be paid by developers towards the provision of existing and future water supply and sewerage infrastructure.

These charges are levied under the Water Management Act (2000) and are unrelated to Developer Contributions levied under Section 7.11/7.12 of the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act (1979).

Council is required by the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) of NSW to review the Water Supply and Sewerage DSPs every five years. The DSPs previously issued by the former Gosford City and Wyong Shire Councils are now due for review.

IPART requires new charges to be implemented by 1 November 2019, with the methodology used to be consistent with its recent Determination on Developer Charges for Sydney Water, Hunter Water and Central Coast Council (October 2018).

The draft DSPs will be on exhibition from 3 September to 14 October 2019 and are available for viewing here.

Changes to the DSPs will affect the amount of developer charges paid for additional connections to the Central Coasts water supply and sewerage systems but will only affect Water Management Act approval applications (Section 305 applications) received after 1 November 2019.
