Our Application Process

At Hunter Water, it’s important we make the application process for builders and home renovators as efficient and streamlined as possible. 

The process below applies if you are building or renovating of single residential dwellings.

Submit Your Plans in 3 Simple Steps

Step 1: Are you building over one of our assets?

First of all, we need to ensure that your construction will not impact on our water or sewer assets. To check this first, view the following information:

Step 2: We Stamp Your Plans

For any building, renovation or extension, your plans must be stamped by us before they are submitted to Council. If your property will not impact on our water or sewer assets we stamp them and they are ready for you to submit to council. A new process has been developed for lodging your plans for stamping.

Step 3: If You are Building Over a Hunter Water Asset

If you're building 1.5 metres or less from one of our water or sewer mains or sewer junction, then you be asked to complete a Build Over Asset Application Form. Your application will be assessed and a letter forwarded to you advising of our requirements.
