Exhibition of Draft On-Site Sewage Management Policy

Council at its Ordinary Meeting on 10 December 2019 resolved to place on exhibition a Draft On-Site Sewage Management Policy.

The purpose of the On-Site Sewage Management Policy is to guide the management of onsite sewage facilities, to protect and enhance public health and the environment and to assist Council in prioritising resources based on a risk assessment.

The effective and successful management of domestic, commercial and industrial wastewater systems within the un-sewered areas of Hawkesbury is a non-discretionary role of Council. The draft policy supports a systematic approach to sustainable land use planning, site assessment, system design and installation and also ensures accountability by owners and operators for the correct operation and maintenance of on-site sewage management systems.

The Draft Sewage Management Policy is on public exhibition from Friday 10 January 2020 to Friday 28 February 2020 8:30am to 5pm at Council’s Administration Building, 366 George Street, Windsor and may be also be viewed on Council’s website at www.hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au

Exhibition of Draft Voluntary Planning Agreement  Policy

Council at its Ordinary Meeting on 10 December 2019 resolved to place on exhibition a Draft Voluntary Planning Agreement Policy.

The purpose of the Draft Voluntary Planning Agreement Policy (VPA Policy) is to provide a framework for Hawkesbury City Council to guide the preparation of Voluntary Planning Agreements. The VPA Policy has been prepared in accordance with Subdivision 2 of Division 7.1 of Part 7 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 and the relevant sections of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000.

A VPA may be used for a variety of reasons in order to achieve public benefits which are not ordinarily available through the planning and development system or are available in a restricted manner. Voluntary Planning Agreements:

* provide a means for allowing the local community to share in the financial benefit obtained by a developer due to a change in planning controls or a consent to a development application;
* provide a way for the local community to secure public benefits in addition to measures which are required to address the impact of development on private and public lands;
* allow for a flexible means for achieving good development outcomes and targeted public benefit;
* provide opportunities for the local community to participate in the quality and delivery of public benefits; and
* allow developers to have an input to the type, quality, timing and location of public benefits.

The VPA Policy is on public exhibition from Friday 10 January 2020 to Friday 28 February 2020 8:30am to 5pm at Council’s Administration Building, 366 George Street, Windsor and may be also be viewed on Council’s website at www.hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au

If you would like to make a submission, Council will receive these, in writing, addressed to the General Manager, Hawkesbury City Council, PO Box 146, Windsor NSW 2756, by fax to
