In this phase you will be planning your development, preparing plans and submitting documents to council and Unitywater for approval.
We recommend requesting a Certification Advice Notice (CAN) or a Services Advice Notice (SAN) before you start the connection application. This free service guides you on how to submit a complete application and ensures your application is assessed in the shortest time possible.
A CAN is for a certifier and SAN is for an applicant. Both these result in ‘advice’, but they are submitted by different parties. The CAN is specific to a certifier asking a question as a certifier.
This free service saves you time and cost by providing upfront advice that helps you understand what’s involved in applying to connect, and what supporting information is required to lodge a successful application.
