Land development

Our Land Development team provides technical advice and compliance for our assets on your project.

We work with the development industry to develop new ideas and work practices in the provision of water and sewerage services.

Our policies and working with Greater Western Water assets

Our Land Development Manual details cost recovery, construction, quality assurance and audit policy for land development activities. It also describes the methods of determining contributions for water and sewerage services.

The policies refer to standard subdivision developments. Where these policies are inappropriate for a development, the Land Development team will determine requirements for the development on a case by case basis.

In conjunction with the Land Development Manual and the New Customer Contributions Guide, please visit the following land development pages to assist you with your land development project:
