Changes Proposed to the Central Coast Council Development Servicing Plans

August 27, 2019

The Central Coast Council is undertaking the five-yearly review of its Water Supply and Sewerage Development Servicing Plans.


A Development Servicing Plan (DSP) is a document which details the water supply and sewerage charges to be levied on 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 the Developer Contributions levied under section 7.11/7.12 of the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979.


Councils are required by the NSW Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) to review water supply and sewerage DSPs every five years. The Central Coast Council is now in the process of revising its DSPs with public exhibition scheduled between 3 September 2019 and 14 October 2019.


Changes to the DSPs will affect the amount of developer charges paid for additional connections to the Central Coast water supply and sewerage systems for applications received after 1 November 2019.


Interested parties are invited to make submissions to the Council at Further inquiries can be made to Council on 1300 463 954.


Alternatively, comments and questions can be sent to HIA.
