Land & Property Development

This section relates to you if your development includes:

  • subdividing land
  • building residential units
  • industrial or commercial premises

Hunter Water facilitates the planning and provision of water services for sustainable land development in the lower Hunter and secures existing and future water infrastructure through the planning process and construction phase.

If you are subdividing land or developing property, we need to approve the installation of all new water and sewer services.

Development within Drinking Water Catchments (Special Areas)

Hunter Water participates in the planning and assessment process for development proposals that may impact on drinking water supplies within any of the drinking water catchments (known as 'Special Areas'). Please see the below Guidelines for Development in the Drinking Water Catchments if the property you intend to develop or subdivide is located in a drinking water catchment or if you think it might be.
