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.
A cap on the value of reduced infrastructure charges applies up to a total of $20M ($10M in each local government area). Reduced infrastructure charges to the value of approximately $1.1M have already been granted. Hence, there is still substantial value remaining.
To make an application for a development incentive, please read the policy (below), view the area maps (right) and send your written request to email@example.com.
