Enabling good development in the Lower Hunter region is a strategic priority for Hunter Water. To help support this objective we will repay developers the cost for appropriately sized water and sewer infrastructure that meets our funding and procurement requirements.
The Funding and Delivery of Growth Infrastructure Standard
This Funding and Delivery of Growth Infrastructure Standard outlines our approach to funding assets supporting urban growth in the Lower Hunter.
The Growth Plan
We publish the Growth Plan annually which includes detailed maps showing the likely timeframe for new development in the Lower Hunter. The growth maps assist us in determining the eligibility of a development site and associated funding category to be assessed under the Standard.
Developer Delivered Infrastructure Contribution Deed forms the commercial agreement between Hunter Water and the developer to fund the agreed works.
Guideline for Funding and Procuring Assets
This Guideline outlines our requirements for funding and procuring assets. Compliance with this guideline is a minimum requirement for the repayment of costs under the Standard.
Our Application Process
Once a Final Infrastructure Contribution Sum notice has been received, invoices can be emailed to us alongside the associated Section 50 Certificate for the stage of works to make a claim for payment.
