Business customers who are unable to comply with the Level 2 water restrictions are required to apply for an exemption using the following form. Exemption requests will be assessed on an individual basis.
If you're requesting an exemption, we're asking you to outline how you're contributing to water savings in other ways, so we ask that you review and tick those water saving measures that you have applied in your business.
Please indicate below if you will need to seek exemption for any of the Level 2 water restrictions. If you hold a Level 1 exemption, you will need to update your exemption for Level 2 by filling out the form below which includes new restrictions.
Our large volumes of exemptions applications have resulted in extended processing times and you will receive a response from us within 10-15 working days. Until your exemption is granted our Community Water Officers will not be enforcing restriction breaches but we ask that you are mindful with your water use while you are waiting for your exemption to be processed.
We will contact you via email to let you know the outcome of your request. If approved, you will receive a confirmation email which will serve as your exemption approval
