Building Plan Stamping

Plan Stamping Implementation

Hunter Water implemented a new process for stamping building plans on 1 July 2015. This process maintains efficient and accurate processing of building plan assessments at Customer Service Centres.

What is required of you?

If you are planning, building and/or developing your property you are required to submit your plans to us to check whether there will be no impact on Hunter Water asset. If it is determined that you are building within the zone of influence of any Hunter Water asset you will be required to submit a Build Over Asset Application together with a set of plans. However, if there is no impact to our asset, your plans will be stamped and returned to you within three business days.

Plans submitted for any development other than a stand-alone dwelling will require a Developer Services Application be submitted together with a full set of plans for further assessment.

To assist us in making this a smooth process for you please complete the Building Plan Assessment Application and attach your building/development plans which you would like assessed together with the associated fee
