An application for a Water Approval and a development application do not need to be submitted simultaneously, or in a particular order, however to potentially save you time and money, we recommend you lodge an application for a Water Approval after you have received the Development Approval.
While these processes are interconnected, the timing of your submission is at your discretion. If approved, each will come with its own, respective conditions package and ultimately, both sets of conditions must be completed.
If the proposed development is outside of the Urban Utilities Connection Area, it would be highly beneficial if a development application has been lodged with the local council. This will assist our assessment team to understand the scope of the development, reduce both potential complications and the need for amendments.
Where developers are proposing to connect to our water supply and/or wastewater services, councils may require evidence that a connection is available.
