development servicing plans

Council has introduced Development Servicing Plans (DSP’s) for Water Supply and Sewerage Services within the urban areas of the city.

builder on site Plans are available for inspection at our offices.

These documents and plans have been prepared in accordance with the Developer Charges Guidelines for Water Supply, Sewerage and Stormwater (December 2002) issued by the NSW Office of Water.

The documents and plans set developer charges to be levied on any development that utilises water supply and sewerage services provided by the Council to recover part of the infrastructure costs incurred by the Council.

This infrastructure includes:

  • Water Supply – Dams, Treatment Plants, Reservoirs, Pumping Stations and Gravity Trunk Mains
  • Sewerage – Treatment Plants, Pumping Stations, Rising Mains and Trunk Mains

The purpose of Developer Contributions serves two related functions:

  • They provide a source of funding for infrastructure required for new urban development;
  • They provide signals regarding the cost of urban development and thus encourage less costly forms and areas of development.

The Development Servicing Plans - Documents and Plans are available for inspection at Council’s offices in Nowra and Ulladulla, or click on the link below.
