Unitywater’s development incentives policy is designed to benefit our customers by reducing the average water and sewerage bill by spreading the cost of owning and operating the existing infrastructure across a larger number of connections.
This will be achieved by incentivising development in areas where Unitywater’s networks have capacity to serve an increased number of connections without additional capital expenditure.
How it works
Unitywater is willing to reduce infrastructure charges by 50% to 100% depending upon the density of development. This is conditional on gaining approval by the relevant council and on the development proceeding as approved. Incentives will be provided on a ‘first in, first served’ basis over the next two years up to a maximum total value of $20M ($10M in each local government area).
